Scotland’s Energy Future: Community Engagement – Aberdeen

Evidence Gathering Session

The RSE’s Energy Inquiry aims to contribute to the important debate around Scotland’s energy supply, demand and use; a debate that needs to recognise our moral and environmental responsibilities. It will also look to inform the policy and decision making at a Scottish, UK and international level that will ultimately decide whether the path Scotland chooses to follow provides the resources needed at acceptable financial, moral, ethical and environmental costs.

As an important part of the RSE’s major Inquiry into Scotland’s Energy Future, members of the Inquiry Committee will be travelling across Scotland to engage with different communities.

This evidence gathering session will:

  • explain the background to the Inquiry, why it is taking place, and what it hopes to achieve;
  • look to gather the views and experiences of communities on energy issues affecting them on both a local and national level;
  • provide the opportunity for attendees to share their thoughts on the 15 questions posed by the Inquiry in its consultation;
  • ultimately help to inform the final report published by the RSE on Scotland’s Energy Future.

Join members of the Committee at the James Hutton Institute in Aberdeen on Thursday  19 July at 6pm (registration from 5.30 pm).

The event is free to attend.  Register below or contact  Craig Denham – 0131 240 2789 – for further information.
