  • To review critically the current forecasts of energy demand in Scotland and the influences on it
  • To examine how that demand may be met, assessing the feasibility and security of the range of possible sources of supply
  • To take account of the environmental imperative to reduce carbon emissions, and associated political commitments
  • To consider the moral and ethical implications of the various options open to Scotland; how and where energy resources are developed, the way in which we use them, and the level of responsibility we have as a nation for the energy we consume
