In response to the challenges of Climate Change it is everyone’s responsibility to not only support and work together towards a greener future for us all globally, but to also act locally, on numerous levels, when and where we can.

On 1 May 2019 an Environmental and Climate Change Emergency was declared following the finding of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. In order to avoid more than 1.5°C rise in global warming, global emissions would need to fall by around 45 per cent from 2010 levels by 2030, reaching net zero by around 2050.
In June 2019 the UK became the first major economy in the world to pass laws to end its contribution to global warming by 2050.
On 27 August 2020, the Scottish Government’s Chief Planner issued a letter in relation to electricity storage and the consenting regime.

In October 2021 the UK Governments ‘Net Zero Strategy’ was launched and commits the UK to be powered entirely by clean electricity by 2035, subject to security of supply. In order to meet this target, a key component is the deployment of new flexibility measures including energy storage to help smooth out power supply and future price spikes.
