To ask the Scottish Government how much energy is currently generated in Scotland from community and locally owned sources.


There is an estimated 908 MW of community and locally owned renewable energy capacity operational in Scotland, as of the most recent annual update in December 2022. This represents 45% of our target of 2 GW capacity of community and locally owned renewable energy by 2030.

In the Onshore Wind Sector Deal, the Scottish Government and onshore wind sector have jointly committed to develop approaches to support and encourage community shared ownership models, and will publish a framework on this by the end of 2024.
