Scottish Renewables

As a trade association with over 260 members SCOTTISH RENEWABLES has presented a united voice for the renewable energy industry in Scotland since 1996.

SCOTTISH RENEWABLES is a forum of key players with interests including biomass, heat, hydro, micro, marine and wind technologies. Our members share a common interest in the development of renewables in Scotland.


  • Scottish Renewables supports the development and provision of a sustainable energy future for Scotland.
  • Sustainable energy comes from sources that are safe, clean and renewable, and which should also be secure, diverse and competitive.
  • Scottish Renewables therefore promotes the effective use of Scotland’s abundant wind, wave, hydro, biomass, solar, landfill gas and tidal resources to generate social, economic and environmental benefits for all.


Since our inception, the Scottish renewables industry has grown significantly and has made an important contribution in the delivery of climate change targets. It is our role to support this work, and ensure successful delivery of a sustainable renewables industry for Scotland.

To achieve this Scottish Renewables will:

  • Promote a vision of the “win-win” potential of renewables to create jobs and prosperity for Scotland, as well as safeguarding the environment, to encourage the adoption of targets and strategies which make the best use of our indigenous resources
  • Work with Government organisations, NGOs and other interested parties to formulate effective strategies, deliver agreed targets, and integrate renewables into the broader agenda for sustainable development in Scotland Facilitate networking for constructive dialogue between Members and Associates and other stakeholders through extensive events programme
  • Provide coherent, unified and authoritative representation of Members’ interests at the highest levels through meetings, briefings and responses to formal consultations Research, collate and disseminate information about renewables and business opportunities to serve the needs of Members and Associates
  • Provide professional and expert intelligence to Members through daily briefings, specialist working groups and a monthly newsletter


  • With a two tiered membership, Scottish Renewables provides the information required by its members either on an Associate of Commercial level
  • FULL MEMBER status is open to all commercial organisations involved with renewable energy and to legally constituted trade associations. Members can take an active role in developing and determining Scottish Renewables policy and actions.
