Energy supplier SSE has warned that uncertainty arising from a referendum on Scottish independence may affect its investments in new cheap energy sources.
The firm stated the risk of regulatory change will impact its decision-making when deciding whether to invest in the country and may increase its costs as a result.
It also added that if voters opt for an independent Scotland, the integration of the energy grid between Scotland and the rest of the UK should continue regardless, to ensure Great Britain has a single market.
"SSE supports further harmonisation of energy systems and markets to strengthen security of supply and achieve efficient use of energy resources for the benefit of customers," it said.
A referendum on independence for Scotland is a key policy of the ruling Scottish National Party in the country, though the timing of such a vote and the nature of the question asked has created disagreements with Westminster.
