Renewables 'at highest ever level' in Scotland



Renewables 'at highest ever level' in Scotland
Use of renewable energy in Scotland is at its highest ever level, new statistics have revealed.

One fifth of the country's electrical requirements were accounted for by renewable energy last year, which is an 18 per cent rise compared to 2006.

Also, there was a 13 per cent fall in the amount of energy generated by nuclear power in 2007.

Jim Mather, the energy minister, commented that the renewable energy potential of Scotland is fast being turned into reality.

"Scotland generates more energy from renewables than ever before, using our natural resources to reduce emissions and making a significant contribution to the Scottish economy," he said.

"Our targets send a clear signal about the scale of our ambitions and there is a vast array of potential at Scotland's disposal, with commercial interest - and investment - in new tidal, wood fuel, water and wave energy schemes."

Scotland intends to produce 50 per cent of its electricity through renewables by 2020.ADNFCR-1235-ID-18948393-ADNFCR
