Scotland supplies three-quarters of energy from renewable sources

Scottish Renewables published a report on 17 September in anticipation of the launch of the Scottish Renewable Energy Festival.

The report highlights that in pursuit of Scotland’s 2045 net-zero target, nearly 75% of the electricity consumed in Scotland is from renewable sources.

New onshore (8,091MW) and solar PV (354MW) projects are generating half of Scotland’s electricity, and the development of offshore (752MW), hydro (1,653MW) and other renewable technologies mean that Scotland’s total energy requirements will soon be met by green energy. Currently, the installed capacity of renewable energy is 11.3GW.
