Monitoring gender and other equality and diversity issues in the Scottish renewables sector
Each year, the Scottish Government reports on the progress made towards achieving its renewable energy targets through the 2020 Renewable Routemap for Scotland Update. ClimateXChange has developed the equalities monitoring programme that informs the reporting.
The survey for the 2015 report is now online. We are keen to hear from all of the different types and sizes of organisation that are involved in the renewables industry in Scotland, from PR to Manufacturing, NGOs to Developers, community groups and micro businesses to large corporations.
Electricity and heat demand in Scotland Invitation to tender
We are inviting tenders for a research project assessing the potential for electrifying a proportion of heat demand in Scotland. The purpose is to examine specific technology types against a range of criteria and develop a user-friendly model for a wider system assessment.
The project is expected to take 6 months, reporting in spring 2016.
