Unity appeal on energy

Scotland and England are mutually dependent on each other to drive forward the renewable energy revolution, a UK Government minister has claimed.

Energy Secretary Ed Davey said it would be tough for England to generate 15% of energy through renewables by 2015 without the help of Scotland which has an abundance of natural resources.

He added that Scotland relied on money from English energy consumers to help pay for “renewables as the technology develops”.

Addressing delegates at the Liberal Democrat spring conference in Inverness, Mr Davey said: “The truth is we need each other.

“Indeed, devolution in the UK has worked and is the best future for us all.”

Mr Davey said the UK Government should push ahead with all forms of low-carbon energy – including nuclear, which is opposed by the Scottish Government – as well as taking forward new carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology at sites like Peterhead.
