New data on either side of the Atlantic again highlights renewable energy’s growing dominance. New data from the US and Scotland has this week again highlighted the ability of the renewables industry to beat expectations, as clean energy again played a major role in meeting power demand on both sides of the Atlantic.

The campaign group said that overall wind power met 41 per cent of Scotland’s entire power demand over the month.
