ROBERT GORDON UNIVERSITY. ABERDEEN BUSINESS SCHOOL. 2013. Proceedings of the energy policy conference: energy projects and social license of energy projects in Scotland. 14-15 November 2013, Aberdeen, UK.
Attracting investments for renewing infrastructure, developing onshore gas activity or carbon capture and storage are just a few of the policy entries in the United Kingdom's long list of priorities for enhancing the country's energy security. With the expansion of onshore wind farms and the Westminster government's stance in favour of growing a UK unconventional gas industry, this country seems set to grow more onshore energy projects despite the resistance of local communities and a vocal anti-fracking public opinion. Closer to Aberdeen, onshore energy infrastructures and their impact on the local scenery continue to feed much heated debate as to their compliance with local planning policies and the Scottish nation's sustainability objectives. At Robert Gordon University, part of our teaching and research directly connects with these energy policy issues. In order to contribute to this stream of ideas, and as part of the Law School's 2013 programme of events, the Aberdeen Business School sponsored in November 2013 a two-day conference discussing 'Energy Projects and the Social License of Energy Project in Scotland'. This booklet brings you seven of our keynote speakers's presentations in a transcript reflecting how these were delivered during the conference. A number of circumstances prevented us from publishing this digest at an earlier date but it truly is a pleasure to be able to release these transcripts now as I am sure you will appreciate the significance of the views expressed and the scholarship and expertise of our keynote speakers from Denmark, England and Scotland. We have not compiled the keynotes in the same order as the one that was followed for their presentations at the conference but they have been slightly reorganised in an attempt to create a greater dynamic between the views and topics discussed. We hope that our readers will find this approach useful to help them better appreciate the conclusions expressed.
