Regen is pleased to share a summary report on the future energy scenarios we have developed for the North of Scotland for Scottish and Southern Energy Networks. This unique and diverse area already supports 3.2 GW of distribution connected generation and nearly 2 GW of onshore wind. If we are going to meet our climate targets, onshore wind could double over the next 12 years, there will be a rapid switch to electric vehicles and more people will be using electricity to heat their homes.
Scenarios have always helped us deal with, and plan for, uncertain futures. Scenarios that look at our future energy system – the bedrock of our decarbonisation goals – are, therefore, becoming increasingly important as we anticipate step changes in energy use, demand and generation.
The report contains results summaries by region, with case studies of current decarbonisation work from across the region.
