Scottish proposals for banding renewable energy subsidies

Scottish Government consultation (26 pages, PDF) on proposals for Scotland to deviate from UK-wide policy on subsidies to renewable energy projects, in particular by introducing higher subsidy bands for marine (tide and wave) energy, replacing a Scottish scheme (which has not been used so far as no projects have met the qualifications).

This is the statutory consultation before regulations are made, and follows an April 2008 consultation. Responses by Friday 12 December 2008.

Note: Some apparent links in the PDF to supporting information reports do not work. I cannot find the reports in question. Franck
