Scotland's Labour party has outlined proposals to boost the country's green cheap energy sector and help it become a world leader in renewable technology.
According to the Press and Journal, the party believes a new organisation named Energy Scotland could be used to ensure Scotland becomes a major exporter of cheap electricity derived from green sources.
Iain Gray, head of Labour, commented: "Energy Scotland will co-ordinate our policy on renewables such as wind and wave power as well as nuclear, electricity, energy efficiency, home insulation and household renewables, the grid infrastructure and coal, oil and gas.
"We need joined-up thinking in these areas so we can control energy demand and reduction," he added.
The MSP noted that a strong green energy sector will help Scotland's economy when the North Sea oil runs out and said such an industry "means Aberdeen can remain the energy capital of Europe".
Meanwhile, plans for a new green skills academy in the north-east are set to be discussed this month.
