To ask the Scottish Government when ministers last met Scottish Renewables and what was discussed.
Answered by: Paul Wheelhouse 28 September 2016
In my capacity as Energy Minister I have met with Scottish Renewables on a number of occasions in the context of my role, but last met formally on 22 August 2016. This was an introductory meeting between myself and the organisation. In this meeting we discussed engagement with the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, the recent offshore wind judgements, transmission costs in Scotland, the Scottish Government Energy Strategy and shared ownership.
