City Climate Challenge

A report just launched by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors in Scotland (RICS Scotland) highlights the potential scale of the climate change problems facing three major Scottish cities. It focuses on the key challenges for Edinburgh’s transport network, Glasgow’s energy supply, and energy demand in Inverness to provide a dramatic insight into how these cities could look in the future. It suggests that based on current energy usage, 1344 wind turbines will be needed to supply energy to Glasgow alone. A copy of the full report and an executive summary can be downloaded from the RICS Scotland website.
