WWF Scotland said that this represents an increase of 44 percent compared to the same period last year.
The analysis follows data released at the end of March which showed that renewable electricity generation in Scotland grew by 26 percent in 2017. Wind generation in Scotland increased by 34 percent, while hydro was up nine percent.
The Scot-Govt has ambitious plans when it comes to renewable energy. By 2020, it wants renewables to produce the equivalent of 100 percent of Scotland’s gross annual electricity consumption. It is also aiming for renewables to provide the equivalent of 11 percent of the country’s heat demand by 2020.
