Scotland's Renewable Energy Already Supports 22660 Jobs!

"The UK National Accounts, for instance, aim to detail transactions of different sectors to show how ‘’the income from production is distributed and redistributed’’. But renewable energy is not counted among those sectors. Surely the UK isn’t trying to play down the economic performance of sectors in which Scotland excels and in which it has the greatest potential."

Though Surrounded By Windfarms Scots Pay More For Electricity!

"This new research clearly highlights how Scotland’s renewables potential is being unjustifiably damaged by Westminster’s approach to transmission charges, which are the highest in Europe by some margin. This means that the cost of energy bills has been inflated by Westminster government policy, and economic growth and job creation has been stunted in Scotland – the part of Europe with the greatest renewables potential."

World's Largest Offshore Windfarm For Scotland

"In Energy Voice today: The final push for the world’s largest floating wind farm off Aberdeen is underway, with a giant foundation making the first leg of its journey. Boskalis said transportation of the third giant foundation from Spain to the Netherlands last week, later destined for Aberdeen, begins a phase which will see the six-turbine Kincardine Offshore Windfarm 'take shape in the coming months'."

Scotland's Renewable Energy Production Soaring

"From Recharge News, yesterday: "Renewables developer Iberdrola has unveiled plans to wire its 540MW Whitelee wind plant in the Scottish Highlands (sic) together with a solar array, battery facility and the UK’s largest electrolyser to create a new giant hydrogen production complex."  Leaving aside the usual confusion about Scotland’s geography, this is a big deal, to wire together wind, solar and battery facilities to generate industrial-scale volumes of H² (hydrogen)."
