ABSTRACT
The article highlights the argument of Scotland's deputy first minister that renewable energy sources have a central role to play in fighting climate change. He outlines the country's clean energy and climate change strategies. He cites Scotland's capacity to supply 25% of the Europe's wind energy and 25% of its tidal energy. He calls for the grid upgrades and sub-sea cables needed to boost Scottish renewable energy.
