News updates

The Department of Energy and Climate Change has released statistics that show that Scotland’s renewable electricity generation in the first half of 2014 was 30% higher compared to same period in 2013. 

This overall increase is primarily due to a 50% rise in hydro generation and a 20% rise in wind output. The statistics also estimate that renewables met a record breaking 46.4% of gross electricity consumption in 2013 – up from 39.9 per cent in 2012, indicating that Scotland is on track to meet its interim target of 50% by 2015.

Figures also show that in 2012 renewable heat generation was 3.0% of Scotland’s heat demand. This is up from 2.7% in 2011, indicating that good progress is being made towards the Scottish renewable heat target.
