EDF Renewables manifesto – Scottish Election 2021

The coming Holyrood elections provide an opportunity to further embed the progress that has been made in developing our renewables industry, and to influence the wider financial and economic backdrop against which further steps can be taken.

It’s why we’ve put together a manifesto, outlining the main challenges or potential barriers, to the green recovery, such as:

  • The size of the Contracts for Difference Pot 1 – and ensuring a balanced mix of wind and solar
  • Ensuring the planning processes in Scotland are fit for purpose
  • Overcoming investment challenges – such as the cost of radar mitigation


We’ve shared our manifesto with the main political parties in the hope that the next Parliament will tackle these barriers – and help to accelerate Scotland towards a net-zero future.
