People looking to get cheap electricity from green sources could benefit from one of a number of renewable energy schemes being developed in Scotland, which have been detailed in a new map.
First minister Alex Salmond explained the document highlights the efforts the country has been making with partners around the world to bring clean, cheap energy to consumers and cut the nation's carbon footprint.
He noted international firms such as Samsung, Gamesa and Mitsubishi have agreed deals will local energy suppliers such as SSE and Scottish Power to develop the technology.
"Scotland has around a quarter of Europe's offshore wind and tidal energy resource and a tenth of its wave power potential," Mr Salmond said, adding harnessing this should help create jobs and boost the economy, as well as secure a reliable supply of cheap energy for the future.
Recently, the country's energy minister Fergus Ewing told Westminster's Committee on Energy and Climate Change England will need renewables from north of the border in order to keep domestic electricity bills down in the coming years.
