An industry body has called for Scotland to triple the amount of renewable energy it produces within the next 15 years. Scottish Renewables said it should be possible for the country to source half of all its energy from sources such as wind farms or hydro schemes by 2030. That goal would include heat and transport, and electricity generation. Today the figure stands at 15% but Scottish Renewables said the new 50% target would be achievable. Scotland is already expected to meet a target of producing the equivalent of 100% of its electricity demand from renewable energy schemes by 2020. Scottish Renewables said the time had come to raise the bar.
