The UK as a whole generates up to 20 000 MW with wind power, on a good day, on and offshore. Scotland generates up 5 700 MW. I suspect Scotland does it more reliably due to more windy days but never mind that for the moment.
You’ll see that Energy Voice has concentrated on the UK performance:
‘Onshore and offshore wind farms in the UK supplied 35.6% of electricity generation, more than gas (31.2%) and nuclear (21.3%) between Friday 8 and Thursday 14 March. On its own, offshore wind generated 21.4% of all electricity required last week.’
A quick calculation reveals that Scotland produces 28.5% of all of the UK’s wind-powered electricity generation.
The 8% meme:
With only 8% of the population, Scotland’s maritime sector accounts for 25% of the UK maritime sector’s (GVA) contribution to the economy and is 17.5% more productive than the UK marine oil and gas sector. Once more, too wee, too poor?
