Energy is quite simply the single most important commodity for our survival. The provision of a sustainable, secure and safe supply of energy should thus be every nation’s highest priority. It is all too easy to lose sight of this priority in times of abundance. The future of that abundance is now in question and the impact of current demand is causing concerns about the consequences for our environment. Energy is an emotive subject and too important to become a party political issue. The wide-ranging report into Scotland's Energy Supply makes 37 key recommendations and emphasises that diversity of energy sources will be crucial to security of supply.
