The Scottish government's plan to compare energy generation technology in the renewables sector and to ignore nuclear power is under scrutiny again.
Ed Miliband, secretary of state for energy and climate change, yesterday (November 9th) announce plans to fast-track nuclear redevelopment, but the Scottish government refuses to consider encompassing new nuclear power stations in its future plans, reports the Herald.
Iain Gray, the Scottish Labour leader, claims the Scottish National Party (SNP) is missing an opportunity to attract millions of pounds of investment and to create 18,000 jobs as a result.
Mr Gray told the paper: "Several new ¬nuclear power stations are to get the go-ahead, which will create half a million new job opportunities, but Scotland will lose out because of the SNP's incompetence and dogma."
He added that Scotland will be forced to import electricity or use more fossil fuels in the absence of nuclear redevelopment.
French-owned energy supplier EDF is due to lead nuclear redevelopment in the UK.
