Presentation Transcript

  1. Climate Change and Renewables Placements Presentation Allen Hughes National and Territorial Planning Scottish Government

  2. Structure • Branch responsibilities and targets • Climate change targets • Onshore wind, offshore wind and heat and NPF3 and SPP • Consenting and permitted development

  3. Branch Responsibilities • Climate change and planning • Renewables (mitigation) • Waste • Minerals

  4. Ministerial: briefings, speeches, correspondence, parliamentary questions, ministerial support Government: SG work groups, ensuring planning interests are covered in work of other Directorates Territorial:comments to territorials on MIRs, SDPs, LDPs and SG, supporting territorials on visits Research – commissioning & steering research External Work e.g. SNH steering groups, good practice events, liaison Scottish Renewables, presentations / panel members at conferences, talks to placements Legislation / NPF/ SPP / Circular – Drafting & reporting Online Advice – Drafting and regular update Branch Duties

  5. Climate Change • Climate Change (S) Act 2009 - Mitigation • Targets : 42% GHG emissions reduction in Scotland by 2020, 80% by 2050 • Public body duty Actions • S72 (3F) - GHG policies in dev plans • SPACE – (Spatial Planning Assessment of Climate Emissions) • Carbon calculator for wind farms

  6. Electricity, Heat and Community and Locally Owned Renewables Targets 2020 Routemap for Renewable Energy in Scotland Draft Electricity Generation Policy Statement 2010 Draft Outline Heat Vision, RH – EE – DH Action Plans, emerging Heat Generation Policy statement (end of year) Renewables

  7. Dominates work of branch Wind farm spatial frameworks Perceived ‘disconnect’ national and local DM ’technical challenges’ Wind farm visualisation Community benefits, noise, tourism Onshore Wind

  8. NPF3 MIR & Draft SPP – Onshore Wind • Reflects need for grid reinforcements • Supports further deployment, but balances with commitments on protecting nationally important ‘landscapes’ & residential amenity • Wind farms in NPs and NSAs not supported • Consults on SNH ‘core areas of wild land’ maps and community separation of 2.5km within spatial planning • NPF3 question on energy storage

  9. Key action in RAP (2009): to provide leadership and an investment plan for offshore wind, wave and tidal sectors About securing manufacturing, installation, operation & maintenance operations for the offshore renewables industry within Scotland N-RIP Stage 1 report (Feb2010) spatial framework of 11 first phase port & harbour sites, creating clusters of economic activity N-RIP Stage 2 report (July 2010) investment required for 11 sites N-RIP Stage 3 implementation N-RIF (Nov 2010) £70M Ongoing advisory group meetings with stakeholders Encourage PAs to be geared up in development plans and DM to support as proposals arise, streamlining consenting. Supporting Offshore Renewables:NRIP (National Renewables Infrastructure Plan)

  10. NPF3 MIR – Offshore Renewables • Support for delivery of NRIP • Prioritises onshore infrastructure for offshore (particularly Pentland Firth and Orkney Waters, Forth, Tay and Moray Firths) • Aberdeen Harbour Expansion national developments • Electricity grid reinforcements • Relationship with marine planning

  11. Expert Commission on District Heating, Heat mapping projects Highland, Fife and P&K, funds available for rollout to all LAs Deep geothermal study and workshop Possible synergies with heat recovery, e.g. AEA fossil fuel plant study Planning and Heat online advice Planning and Heat

  12. NPF3 MIR & Draft SPP – Planning & Heat • Establishes energy hierarchy (efficiency, recovery, generation) • LDPs to use heat mapping to co-locate heat supply and demand . • LDPs to support heat networks. Where not viable, individual property solutions • Expectations on deep geothermal

  13. Energy applications : Route Consenting Route:- • Electricity –Planning < 50MW, S36 Consents if >50MW • Planning - All heat only applications National / Major / Local :- • Major if capacity of electricity generating station exceeds 20MW • No threshold for heat only applications in hierarchy (but may be other trigger)

  14. PD for Renewables? • Solar photo voltaic & solar thermal panels • Flues for biomass heating system • Flues for combined heat and power system • Ground and water source heat pumps • Free-standing wind turbines and air source heat pumps • Ground and water source heat pump pipes • Solar photo voltaic and solar thermal panels • Biomass boilers and furnaces • Anaerobic digestion systems …Subject to limitations and restrictions
