To achieve net zero it is recognised that a range of new solutions will be needed. Some, such as Direct Air Capture, are relatively new, while others such as carbon capture, utilisation and storage is widely used overseas.

There is also common consent that these new technologies will also be needed alongside the continued growth of renewables like wind and solar. This makes Scotland uniquely attractive because of its proximity to vast supplies of low-cost renewable energy provided by both onshore and offshore wind turbines. On top of meeting everyday demand for low-cost energy, it can also power the process that’s needed to convert North Sea gas to hydrogen both cheaply and efficiently.

The skills and vision needed to deliver renewables energy growth in Scotland are easily and readily transferable from existing industries to help take Scotland's low-carbon energy ambitions to the next stage.
