Big jump in Scotland's green energy output - WWF comment
28 June 2012
Scotland remains on track to generate 100 per cent of electricty needs from green sources
Responding to new Government figures  that show a big jump in output from renewable energy sources, WWF Scotland's Head of Policy Dr Dan Barlow said:
"This big jump in Scotland's renewable output is exciting news and keeps us on track to generate 100 per cent of our electricity demand from renewables by 2020. The continued growth in renewables underlines why it was sensibe for Peel Energy to abandon its futile attempt to build a coal-fired power station at Hunterston in Ayrshire. 
"To ensure Scotland remains on track to a fully renewable future we need to see continued and rapid deployment of all forms of renewables alongside investment in energy efficiency. Such a path will help create jobs, reduce pollution and protect households from volatile fossil fuel prices."
