Responding to new figures showing renewable electricity generation reaching a new record high, Scottish Liberal Democrat energy spokesperson Liam McArthur MSP said
“Scottish Liberal Democrats established the first ever renewable electricity targets, giving confidence to the fledgling industry. Scots are now proud to be at the forefront of clean energy efforts but there’s plenty more to do, including enabling newer technologies a route to market.
“If we’re going to meet our climate change targets, however, ministers need to show more ambition in decarbonising other sectors too, not least transport where emissions remain unchanged over recent decades.
“We need to go much further and faster because the world is in the midst of a climate crisis.”
