First paragraph: Aye. Naw. Mibbe (Yes. No. Maybe). Three words that capture the astonishing and unparalleled series of recent events in Scottish politics held in a Death Star-like grip by the issues of independence, devolution, governance and the right for Scotland to gain increasing control over its own affairs. This chapter sets out the unique focus of the book on Scottish renewable and low-carbon energy policy and practice, as the independence debate returns with a vengeance on the back of the UK ‘Brexit’ referendum. Whilst the Scottish Government has racked up numerous achievements in decarbonising the energy sector with substantial deployment of renewable energy, there are still challenges to be overcome. As this chapter highlights, the emphasis of this book is therefore very much on thecriticalregarding the implications of the independence debate going forward, with emphasis on what this means for renewable and low-carbon technologies.
