SCCS Roundtable: Net Zero Carbon Scotland

  • Wednesday, 29 March 2017 12:30 - 16:30

This roundtable event brought together experts from across the low-carbon energy spectrum to discuss the Scottish Government’s draft Energy Strategy, The Future of Energy in Scotland, the pathways to a fully decarbonised society by 2050 and the potential interplay of different low-carbon technologies in order to meet the strategy’s proposed targets. Outputs from the meeting will be fed back to the Scottish Government, and will be available to download here in early May.
