Wind turbines can fully cover electricity needs of Scotland

According to WWF analysis, this Sunday, Scotland’s high winds were strong enough to generate the equivalent of the country’s electricity needs, Evening Express reports on the 11th of August.


On the 7th of August Scotland’s wind turbines provided 39,545MWh of electricity to the National Grid, as wind speeds reached 115mph on the top of the Cairngorms and gusts of more than 60mph hit towns in the north.

However, some bridges were closed and ferries were cancelled due to bad weather conditions.

“This major moment was made possible thanks in part to many years of political support, which means that across the year now renewables contribute well over half of our electricity needs”, said WWF Scotland director Lang Banks. He added that that experience marked a significant milestone.”
