Google Translate

An energy efficiency and micro generation bill has been lodged with the Scottish Parliament by one of its members, Sarah Boycock. If passed, the bill will set a Scottish target for micro generation, provide incentives and ease the planning regulations for micro generation and encourage small-scale generation in all new buildings. The bill has cross-party support and is welcomed by renewables organisations. Maf Smith from Scottish Renewables says that micro generation could play a key role in tackling climate change and fuel poverty. "There are leading Scottish companies now manufacturing and supplying this equipment, so what they need is government support to build a mass market and bring these devices into the mainstream," he says.
