SSE to accelerate decarbonisation plans

SSE hopes to deliver fivefold increase in its renewable output and cut carbon intensity by 80 per cent by 2030, building a renewable energy portfolio that generates at least 50TWh of renewable electricity.

SSE’s 2030 goals are already linked to executive remuneration, but it is also proposing to increase the emphasis on sustainability overall as well as focusing it more to the longer term. SSE broke new ground when it first announced its SDG-aligned 2030 goals in 2019 and this update makes the targets more stretching after strong delivery over the last three years.

The company will also enable the connection of at least 20GW of renewable electricity generation to its north of Scotland electricity transmission network and enable around two million electric vehicles and one million heat pumps on its electricity distribution networks in the north of Scotland and southern central England by 2030.
