The Scottish Government continues to support generation of energy, including electricity from renewable sources as part of its strategy for improving sustainability, benefiting communities, reducing the effects of climate change and maximising financial returns from Scotland's national forests and land.

What we have done

In January 2019, 1086 MW of electricity generation capacity is installed on the land we manage from wind and hydro power. We continue working on existing agreements in partnership with commercial organisations to develop proposals which have achieved Planning Permission or are working through the planning process. Other sites have yet to apply for planning.

What next?

As part of our efforts to support the Scottish Government's ambitious emissions reduction targets and tackle the climate emergency, we continue to explore the potential of the renewable energy resource on the land we manage. As part of this, we have recently sought proposals for renewable energy generation and storage projects on the land we manage.
