[S2M-1185.3 (Amendment)] Decision Time — 22 Apr 2004 at 17:00

This looks like the vote on S2M-1185.3

The description in the bulletin on 2004-04-22 is:

*S2M-1185.3 Shiona Baird: Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency-As an amendment to motion (S2M-1185) in the name of Mr Jim Wallace, leave out from "endorses" to end and insert "believes that the Scottish Executive can play a much more significant role in tackling climate change by encouraging reductions in energy use through greater energy efficiency and by achieving a greater shift in energy use from fossil fuels to renewable sources, whilst at the same time creating sustainable "green" jobs; welcomes the targets set by the Executive for generation of 40% of electricity from renewable sources but notes that this amounts to only about 8% of Scotland's total energy use; recognises that a study commissioned by the Executive shows that the energy potential from renewable energy in Scotland is as much as 60 gigawatts and therefore that renewable energy has a massive potential to supply energy, not only for electricity but also for fuels; further recognises that Scotland leads the world in research and development of wave energy converters; is gravely concerned that the first order for wave converters has come from outside Scotland and that the potential for a manufacturing industry for wave converters may be lost to Scotland because of insufficient market incentives, and therefore calls on the Executive to set concrete targets for energy efficiency, to publish an action plan, including targets, for renewable energy to supply non-electrical uses and to improve market-based incentives for emerging renewable energy technologies." Supported by: Chris Ballance*, Mr Mark Ruskell*
