Minister promises higher targets for renewable energy in Scotland
1 April 2002

In his first major speech on sustainable development, McConnell -- a member of Friends of the Earth -- said that Scotland already expected to exceed its initial target of 18% of electricity from renewables by 2010. "I want to signal our intention to increase that target," he said. "We will consult on a target to work towards 30% of our electricity coming from renewable sources by 2020."
