The animation – which will be premiered at an international Commonwealth Games renewables event in Glasgow – takes just two-and-a-half minutes to run online viewers through 30 key green energy points.
The video will be accompanied by a hard-copy infographic booklet, to be launched next week, and is designed to communicate the key advantages of renewable energy to Scotland in terms of energy generation, the economy, our people and communities and the environment.
Some of the surprising stats used include:
Scottish Renewables’ Chief Executive Niall Stuart said: “The renewables industry is widely supported by the general public and is providing undoubted economic and environmental benefits to Scotland.
“As the video sets out, renewable energy is bringing investment and jobs to Scotland, helping to cut carbon emissions, and delivering funds to communities across the country – exactly what support for the sector is designed to achieve.
“The video is designed to inform the incredibly important debate about how Scotland meets its future energy needs and set out the benefits of the huge growth in renewable energy output in recent years.”
Scottish Renewables is encouraging its 331 member organisations, as well as politicians, charities, community groups and individuals, to spread the video through Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn.
