A major new target to provide power more than eight million homes using wind energy produced off Scotland’s coasts has been set by the Scottish Government. Energy Minister Paul Wheelhouse said that setting the objective – which the Government hopes to reach by 2030 – is a “pivotal moment” for the offshore wind sector. The capacity of Scotland’s offshore wind production is currently one gigawatt (GW) but there are developments underway to bring this up to 5.6GW. The fresh target announced today would need 11GW of energy from the sector by the end of this decade.
