Four more major wind farms off east coast of Scotland

Planning permission has been granted for four more large wind farms off the east coast of Scotland to add to the already being built giant field of floating turbines to be constructed in Scotland at the re-opened dock in Kishorn. This looks like further confirmation of the confidence in a 100% target for 2030, already reported at:

Scotland’s energy 100% renewable by 2030?

Although the Scottish Government’s target for 2030 is only just over 50% of all energy generation by renewables, a survey suggests many believe 100% is possible. Also, a major Scottish law firm sees tremendous potential in the renewables energy field to overcome market conditions and political barriers. I agree, after reporting on many recent massive wind and marine turbine projects currently underway with still thirteen years to go. For example
