[S3M-1152] Decision Time — 17 Jan 2008 at 17:10

This looks like the vote on S3M-1152

The description in the bulletin on 2008-01-16 is:

*S3M-1152 Jim Mather: Energy—That the Parliament notes the Energy Bill introduced by the UK Government; welcomes the Bill’s provisions in relation to promotion of renewable energy which will allow the Scottish Parliament to determine levels of support for emerging technologies; recognises the potential of carbon capture and storage for reducing carbon emissions and supports further dialogue with the UK Government on exercise of powers in relation to regulation of carbon storage; welcomes the Scottish Government’s position that new nuclear power stations are not necessary to meet renewable electricity targets or carbon emissions targets and are not wanted in Scotland; welcomes the UK Government’s recognition that the Bill’s provisions on nuclear decommissioning should not extend to Scotland, and believes that Scotland can have a secure, low-carbon, non-nuclear energy future through a combination of a growing renewables sector exploiting a range of technologies, including marine energy, cleaner energy from fossil fuels, improved energy efficiency resulting from better insulated buildings and increased awareness of the benefits that accrue from behavioural change and demand reduction. Supported by: Michael Russell*
