MSP Stuart McMillan says Inverclyde can play a key role in making Scotland a leader in renewable energy.

The SNP man has welcomed the news that Scotland’s green energy sector has for the first time delivered more electricity than the country used.

Renewable technologies generated the equivalent of 113 per cent of Scotland’s overall electricity consumption in 2022.

Mr McMillan said: “Clearly, we have the skills, talent and natural resources to become a leader in global renewables – and Inverclyde has the potential to be a part of that, given our hydro-power heritage.

"Our topography also lends itself to wind generation.

“The Scottish Government has an ambition to not only generate enough green electricity to power Scotland’s homes and businesses, but also export electricity to our neighbours, supporting jobs here in Scotland and the decarbonisation ambitions of our partners."
