Wind energy powering Scotland - 10th February
New research shows wind energy provided almost half of Scotland's energy needs in January.
There were 22 days last month where the amount of electricity generated from the wind was sufficient to power every home in the country. Wind turbines supplied a total of 1,125,544 MWh, amounting to 48% of Scotland's total electricity consumption.
Lang Banks, WWF Scotland Director said "2015 proved to be a big year for renewables, and the latest data makes clear that 2016 is already off to a flying start, with wind power alone meeting nearly half of Scotland's total electricity needs during January."
