Scottish Power to focus wind development in Scotland

In an interview with the Mail on Sunday Keith Anderson Chief Executive of Scottish Power, has stated that he believes the future of the UK’s electricity will come from wind, but there is not enough wind or suitable land in England to make new projects financially viable. In an article, published on 6 January, Anderson highlighted planning controls and a lack of high wind speed areas in England meant such projects would not make “economic sense”. Instead, he highlighted how Scotland has “the best wind in Northern Europe”, with plans for £1.7bn of investment.
