    Scottish National Renewable Energy League Awards 2014

    Glasgow City Council has achieved first place in the Scottish National Renewables Energy League 2013/14 (150,000 pop. division) for installed Solar Photovoltaic (PV) electricity across the city.

    The League has been developed by Community Energy Scotland to recognise achievements in renewable energy generation in Scotland.  The League is similar to other initiatives being promoted in other European countries and comparable leagues operate in Germany and Belgium. The League aims to raise awareness of renewable energy generation and send a positive message about Councils supporting and growing renewable energy.

    Data is provided by the Scottish Government and is based on information provided by the Department for Energy and Climate Change (DECC).  This shows that Glasgow has almost 1.5MW of installed solar energy capacity within the city boundaries.  The figures for do not include private domestic installations, but includes solar PV on Council buildings (St Benedict’s School, The Chara Centre, Bardowie Care Home, Glenwood Care Home and Eastgate), housing associations (GHA has installed solar panels on 500 of their properties), the NHS and registered SME's and covers the calendar period 2013/14.

    The award was presented to the Council at the annual Community Energy Scotland conference held on 26/27 November 2014 in Edinburgh.  Keynote speakers include Fergus Ewing MSP, Scottish Energy Minister.
