Driving change and influencing others in action

A key contributor to greenhouse gas emissions is our energy systems. To address its contribution SOSE established the Energy Transition Group, bringing together a diverse range of partners and expertise across the public, private, education and third sectors. After six months extensive work we published the ‘Powering Change’ report, in March. This call to action for local businesses, organisations and partners will ensure the region maximises future energy opportunities– potentially leading to the creation of hundreds of green jobs.

The report calls on all organisations to work collectively to turn the plan into a reality and ensure the region takes up the opportunity to lead the way on this vital issue. It captures the shared ambition to maximise the benefits of working to decarbonise our economy, setting out a clear vision for 2045 and crucial future actions.

In November the United Nations Climate Change Conference, COP26,is scheduled to be held in Glasgow under the presidency of the UK.
