Since 2005, £10.5 million has been awarded to renewable energy projects in Scotland spread across the financial years 2009-10 and 2010-11.

Funding is not 'allocated' to Scotland as the majority of renewable energy funding schemes operated by DECC are open across the UK on a competitive basis.

HMG also provides funding through other delivery partners (for example, the Carbon Trust) and for research, development and demonstration projects which are not yet operational.
