Along with storage, distribution remains a challenge for the effective consumption of Scotland’s fast growing renewable energy generation.

A major upgrade to the Beauly to Loch Buidhe link between parts of the Scottish Highlands will increase overall capacity by 30% and enable better transport of renewable generation across the region.

91 steel towers which have been there since the 1960s have been fitted with higher capacity fittings by Southern Electricity Networks. Southern?

Scotland looks likely to be 100% renewable energy sufficient by 2030 so this kind of infrastructural improvement will be essential.
