Is there going to be a Scottish state-owned energy company? According to The Scotsman, Nicola Sturgeon is keen to create one.

The paper reports that the Scottish Government's economy committee has issued a call for views on options for a publicly-owned energy firm.

Sturgeon has said the government intends to set up an energy company by the end of the current Parliament in 2021, with the aim of providing competitively priced energy and cutting fuel poverty.
