Renewable energy, particularly wind power, can provoke controversy but it is a necessary part of the energy mix to meet our carbon targets and combat Climate Change. It also provides for community owned energy projects such as the Neilston Community Wind Farm which will deliver cheaper energy and generate an estimated £10million over the lifespan of the project that can be used to fund additional locally owned projects (Schiffer, 2014). Community owned projects provide a sense of ownership and individual participation in reducing fossil fuel dependency and reliance on the big six energy companies.

Campaigners against the closure of Dalzell and Clydebridge Steel Works

The South Lanarkshire Green Party joined hundreds of other campaigners in Motherwell, on Saturday 7th November, in support of the workers and communities threatened by the proposed closure of the Dalzell and Clydebridge Steel Works.
The march, which left from the threatened Dalzell plant and culminated at the site of the former Ravenscraig plant, sent a clear signal to both the Scottish and UK governments that campaigners expect them to use all powers at their disposal to ensure the steel industry continues to operate in Lanarkshire.
