A new survey has shown that 79% of Scots want the next UK government to continue to develop sources of renewable energy.

The number puts public support for renewables ahead of fracking, nuclear energy and fossil fuels.

Almost two thirds of the Scottish people also want the next government to help cut emissions and tackle climate change according the YouGov poll.

In comparison to the 79% support for renewables only 26% of the public support fracking for shale gas, with 45% backing the development of new nuclear power stations and 49% in favour of coal and gas-fired stations.

Lang Banks, the Director of WWF Scotland, said, ‘It’s great to see that the vast majority of the public in Scotland want to see the next UK Government continue to take action on climate change.’
