Exporting green energy  

The now widely publicised intention of our government to produce renewable energy for large scale export to Europe is a proposition about which the electorate needs to understand much more about the environmental and economic consequences before agreeing to it proceeding. Theoretically it could produce revenue, but the capital costs involved in setting up the system are unclear and indeed probably not yet fully known. The government must always remember that wind turbines are short term compared
Over and above all of this, if our government continues to refuse to build new nuclear power plants for future base load provision what is to be the alternative for this essential requirement? Are we to buy our base load from England or elsewhere, even if it is in fact nuclear based? Until this issue is resolved to the satisfaction of the people of Scotland – and this must be done soon – there will still remain the prospect a few years hence of candles at dusk for the nation.
