Renewable Energy: Scotland

Volume 508: debated on Tuesday 6 April 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change how much funding his Department has allocated to renewable energy projects in Scotland in each of the last five years; and what funding allocations have been made for future years. (324522)

[holding answer 29 March 2010]: Since 2005, £10.5 million has been awarded to renewable energy projects in Scotland spread across the financial years 2009-10 and 2010-11.

Funding is not ‘allocated’ to Scotland as the majority of renewable energy funding schemes operated by DECC are open across the UK on a competitive basis.

HMG also provides funding through other delivery partners (for example, the Carbon Trust) and for research, development and demonstration projects which are not yet operational.
