Scotland has been working very hard of achieving the 100 percent renewable energy goal and has proven the world that despite its small size it can achieve what it sets its eyes on and that too with least help from the huge economies.
Scotland has powered its remote islands with the renewable energy and has provided the islands a 24-hour energy plan which they had never seen. Scotland has made the impossible possible by taking risks and making sacrifices on the road to achieve 100 percent renewable energy goal and soon it ill be achieving the goal it set. Statkraft, who recently purchased rival Airvolution and retained the company’s Glasgow base, said it has “ambitions” to build up to 600 megawatts (MW) of renewable energy projects by 2025. The firm’s boss claimed his firm would be making a “significant investment” in Scottish onshore wind. Scotland’s energy minister Paul Wheelhouse opened the new office space along with sector trade body Scottish Renewables’ chief executive Claire Mack. Statkraft has three onshore wind farms in Scotland, including the Berry Burn Wind Farm in Moray and the Baillie Wind Farm, west of Thurso. The firm also pledged to “focus on the possibility” of bringing high-speed wireless internet to Scotland’s rural communities.
Onshore wind plays a vitally important role in Scotland’s current energy mix, and the role of Statkraft will continue to be critical to meeting our future energy needs and it is renewable energy projects like the onshore wind farms developed by Statkraft, that will help the nation achieve their low carbon ambitions stated Paul Wheelhouse.
