Question reference: S6W-21918

  • Asked by: Liam Kerr, MSP for North East Scotland, Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party
  • Date lodged: 29 September 2023
  • Current status: Answered by Gillian Martin on 23 October 2023


To ask the Scottish Government for what reason its Energy Strategy and Just Transition Plan, which had previously been due to be published in Spring 2022, will now not be available until summer 2024.


In January 2023 we published the draft Energy Strategy and Just Transition Plan for consultation, after a delay to ensure wide stakeholder engagement and to allow for the finalisation of the technical evidence base.

The consultation closed on 9 May 2023 and received a very high level of responses. We published an independent consultation analysis report in September 2023. It is critical that we respond to the views expressed in the consultation and continue to engage with stakeholders as we work towards the final publication by Summer 2024, including the Just Transition Commission.
