Scotland's doing its bit for 2020 climate targets

I love visiting Scotland - the scenery, the warm welcome and yes, the whiskey too.

Now thanks to a surge in renewable power, most notably in wind generation, figures from the Scottish Government (as reported at New Energy Focus last week) reveal that Scotland is already halfway towards meeting its 2020 emissions reduction target of 42% with 21.2% of emissions already cut.

Other figures reveal that in 2008, renewable energy accounted for 18% of the total electricity generated in Scotland.

It's great news and one the people of Scotland should feel justifiably proud in. Read the full New Energy article here.

Please accept the congratulations of a wee Sassenach.
