Scotland Goes Fossil Fuel Free

Environmentalists rejoiced on Sunday as energy generated by high winds in Scotland was enough to power the entire country for the day. According to a report by The Guardian, the United Kingdom’s Meteorology Department released a weather alert regarding winds reaching 115 miles per hour above the Cairngorms mountain range, Oil Price reported. The severity of the winds forced bridges to close, ferries to be cancelled and trains to be affected, however, renewable energy production soared despite the transportation turbulence. The Scotland branch of the World Wildlife Fund analyzed data from WeatherEnergy, which showed that turbines in Scotland generated enough power to supply the whole country with energy for the day, with some left over. A total of 39,545 megawatt-hours of electricity produced by the turbines entered the country’s National Grid on Sunday, but the nation’s total consumption stood at 37,202 MWh, over 2,000 MWh more than needed.
