The Annual Implementation Report (AIR) of the Scottish Rural Development Programme (SRDP) has been published.

Covering the first three years of the 2014-2020 Programme, the full report and Summary for Citizens can be viewed on the Scottish Government website.

Smart Energy GB has published the latest research into national public opinion on energy and smart meters.

The research shows that almost everyone in Scotland (97%) is now aware of smart meters and amongst those who haven’t upgraded to smart meters yet, the appetite to get one installed soon is high. Over half (54%) of those in Scotland who don’t yet have a smart meter would like to have one installed in the next six months. 

Renewable energy networking event

Borders Energy Agency is hosting a free networking event to consider progress with renewable energy projects across the Scottish Borders.

A number of exciting initiatives have been delivered across the Borders in recent years. Changes in Government subsidy and wider economic issues have impacted the development of projects at all scales. However, significant opportunities still exist for renewables generation in rural South Scotland.

Local Energy Scotland is inviting rural businesses such as farmers, land managers, crofters and rural Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) to come forward with innovative project proposals by the 20th September 2017.

The new fund aims to support proposals focusing on low carbon, renewables and whole system projects including, but not limited to, aspects of heat, electricity, transport, and energy management and ownership.

Chris Morris, manager, Local Energy Scotland, said:

Applications are now open for Adaptation Scotland's new community engagement pioneer project.

Scotland’s climate is changing with widespread impacts for people, nature and business. The Adaptation Scotland programme provides advice and support to help organisations, businesses and communities prepare for, and build resilience to these impacts.
