That this House notes the Office of Gas and Electricity Markets' (Ofgem) review of the electricity transmission network, Project Transmit; welcomes its preliminary recommendations as a step towards a fairer charging regime for projects on the Scottish mainland; hopes that these reforms will encourage investment in renewable technologies in Scotland, which is home to the best wind, wave and tidal resources in the UK; believes that the charges quoted by Ofgem for Scotland's islands could make development uneconomic and may harm the emerging wave and tidal sector there; underlines the importance of Scotland's islands in the production of clean renewable electricity; and urges Ofgem to take action in ensuring a fairer charging framework for Scottish islands during the transition to a low carbon economy.
