Response to Scottish Energy Strategy

Responding to the Scottish Government's Scottish Energy Strategy: The future of energy in Scotland, a spokesperson said:

"Having contributed more than £7billion to the Scottish economy over the past five years, we plan to invest a further £6 billion across the Group in the years to 2020 – a significant portion in Scotland.
