By 2030, the Scottish government plans to produce energy from renewable energy sources and thus reach the 50% target. Scotland wants to achieve an almost completely decarbonised energy system by 2050.
The world’s fourth largest wind farm, Beatrice Offshore Wind Farm, is located 13 kilometres (8. 1 miles) from the Caithness coast in the north of Scotland. It has 84 turbines and will produce enough renewable energy to supply 450,000 homes per year, according to the energy company SEZ.
Wind turbines in Scotland generated 9,831,320 megawatt-hours from January to June 2019, according to WWF Scotland.
The figures provided by WeatherEnergy mean that the Scottish wind has generated enough electricity to power the equivalent of 4. 47 million homes for six months. It’s almost twice as many houses in Scotland,”; says WWF Scotland.
Some of the most ambitious wind energy projects in the world are being implemented in Europe.
