Scottish Renewables Well Ahead of Target


Reacting to the release of official figures which show that renewable energy met 57.7% of Scotland’s electricity demand in 2015, Dr Richard Dixon, Director of Friends of the Earth Scotland, said: “This is great news and an important step in creating a fossil-free Scotland.  Despite the UK Government’s ideological assault on renewable energy Scotland is storming ahead, smashing through our 50% target for 2015.  Well done to all those in this vital industry who have helped produced a big increase from the 2014 figures.

“Clean, green energy is essential in the fight against climate change and Scotland needs to continue to be a champion of renewables while David Cameron continues to chase the nuclear dream in England.”
