Scotland’s onshore wind turbines provided over three quarters of the energy need required to power the whole country over the month of November. Data provided to WWF Scotland by WeatherEnergy found that wind power generated enough energy to power every Scottish home for 25 days out of 30. Scottish onshore wind turbines provided 1,651,050MWh of electricity to the National Grid over the entire month. Dr Sam Gardner, WWF Scotland’s acting director, said: “Scotland’s renewable success story powered on during November. Over the course of the month Scotland’s wind farms generated the equivalent of 77 per cent of our total electricity demand. If we are to build on this success the UK Government must set out a route to market that encourages continued investment in onshore wind.
