Scotland Sets Wind Power Record

New figures show that wind produced enough power to meet, on average, the electrical needs of 124% of Scottish homes between January and June of this year. The first six months of 2017 saw turbines send more than 6.6 million megawatt hours of electricity to the national grid, enough to supply a little over three million Scottish homes, CNBC reported. This represents a 24% increase compared to the previous record-breaking period of January to June 2015. In June 2017, wind turbines sent around 1,039,001 megawatt hours of electricity to the National Grid. The figures come from analysis by WWF Scotland of data provided by Weather Energy. "The first six months of 2017 have certainly been incredible for renewables, with wind turbines alone helping to ensure millions of tons of climate-damaging carbon emissions were avoided," Sam Gardner, WWF Scotland's acting director, said in a statement. Scotland is reportedly home to 25% of Europe's offshore wind resources. More broadly, there are more than 58,000 jobs in Scotland's low carbon and renewable energy economy.
