    Abstract

    This paper is an edited version of a submission by the Centre for Energy Policy to the Scottish Parliament’s Economy, Energy and Tourism Committee on the security of Scotland’s energy supply. It addresses the Committee’s four enquiry themes of energy supply, energy demand, the transmission network and market functioning. This paper starts from the premise that the comparatively narrow focus of the Committee’s inquiry remit risks overlooking the impact of some wider policy issues facing the Scottish energy market in the years ahead.
