Weather Energy by WWF Scotland have reported that a very windy June has caused the wind turbines to generate enough power to supply all of Scotland’s demand and more.

Whilst June was seen to be the biggest month for wind turbines, it is also said that the first half of the year has also really boosted the supply of electricity to the National Grid.

Sam Gardner, acting director of WWF Scotland has advised:

“Scotland is continuing to break records on renewable electricity, attracting investment, creating jobs and tackling climate change.”

“If we want to reap the same rewards in the transport and heating sectors we need Scottish Government to put in place strong policies on energy efficiency and transport in the forthcoming Climate Change Bill.”

The country are now urging the First Minister to put together a strong climate bill that will see other renewable energy sources reaping the same benefits as wind turbines.

According to environmental groups, May recorded an “extraordinary month” for renewable energy. With the weather being above average, the glorious sunshine that we had provided homes with solar panels enough electricity and hot water.

“Thanks to a super sunny month, solar was on sizzling form and could have met more than 100% of household electricity demands in towns and cities across Scotland.”

Alongside solar power, wind power output was also at a record high compared to May 2016.

“the data showed that wind generated enough output to supply 100% of more of Scottish homes on 11 of the 31 days in May.”

Making the transition from oil and gas into renewable energy is not easy. It’s a topic that has been hotly debated in recent years, especially as the downturn of oil and gas continues to encourage an influx of ex industry professionals looking to enter sectors like renewable energy.

Luke Westendarp, Director of Cathcart Energy, gives his advice of how ex oil and gas professionals can better their chances to a change to renewable energy:

The developments for four offshore windfarms have been given the go ahead after there were concerns raised from the RSPB for the local wildlife in the area.

This was causing a halt for The Firth of Forth and Firth of Tay projects which has the capability to supply power to 1.4 million homes in Scotland.

However it has since been found that the Scottish government has given proper consideration to the wildlife in the area and has made the impacts clear to the public. They plan to work alongside the RSPB when taking the project forward onto construction phase.

The projects will bring great prospects to Scotland including 500 jobs during construction and over 100 permanent jobs once it is up and running. In addition “as a nationally-significant infrastructure project, Neart na Goithe will help Scotland and the UK meet their climate change and energy goals, and develop a world-leading offshore wind sector.”
