3. The consultation on a Scottish Energy Strategy: The future of energy in Scotland sought views on a draft Energy Strategy and ran from January to May 2017. The consultation document, responses and independent analysis report are available on the Scottish Government's Consultation Hub: https://consult.gov.scot/energy-and-climate-change-directorate/draft-energy-strategy/

4. The current definition of fuel poverty is "A household is in fuel poverty if, in order to maintain a satisfactory heating regime, it would be required to spend more than 10% of its income on all household fuel use." This definition has been reviewed and a new definition is currently being consulted on as part of the wider consultation on fuel poverty:

5. Primary energy represents the energy inputs to the energy system before transformation, including those which are exported, and excludes imports of petroleum products and electricity. Final consumption figures represent the energy delivered to consumers.

6. In 2016 Longannet closed, significantly reducing the carbon intensity of electricity generated in Scotland.

7. Differences in annual wind speed and rainfall partly explain differences in wind and hydro output between years.

8. The reduction in renewable heat output in 2016 was primarily due to the closure of the Tullis Russell paper mill in Fife, a significant user of renewable heat.
