The National Infrastructure and Construction Pipeline [1] sets out projected levels of investment in renewable electricity generation for the UK and for Scotland.

It provides a strategic overview of the level of public and private infrastructure investment planned to 2021 and beyond though in a number of sectors such as energy, ports and waste, the decision to go ahead with individual projects will be determined by the market.
