It’s no accident that most of our proposed projects are in Scotland.Scotland is the windiest country in Europe, with 25% of Europe’s wind resource and high average wind speeds. The country has already been described as the ‘Saudi Arabia of renewable energy’ due to its enviable potential. With the right investment and strategic thinking, Scotland can fulfil its role as a green energy powerhouse.
Harnessing the power of Scotland’s wind won’t only result in less reliance on polluting and finite fossil fuels. It also has the potential to create a new industry for the future by putting Scotland at the forefront of renewables technology.
A study by Scottish Enterprise has shown the huge potential for employment in the renewable industry, with up to 28,000 direct jobs being created to service the Scottish, UK and worldwide markets for wind turbines. It has also been estimated that 60,000 new green jobs could be created by 2020 in low carbon industries.
