In May 2015 we submitted written evidence to the Scottish Parliament’s Economy, Energy & Tourism Committee on issues relating to security of supply in Scotland.  This follows key evidence regarding electricity security of supply given by National Grid, Ofgem, Scottish Power and SSE to the Economy, Energy and Tourism Committee on 11th March 2015.  Central to the Trust’s response is a call for a National Energy Commission to be established to advise government, taking an overview of strategic energy policy and energy planning throughout Scotland, with a parallel body in the UK.
