In the quest to go green, Scotland is way ahead of the rest of the UK, with nearly all electricity produced by wind power. In October, 98% of Scotland’s electricity was produced by wind turbines, with the devolved government on track to produce all of its electricity from renewable sources by 2020. But what is it about Scotland that makes it so much more successful at being green than the rest of the UK?

The location of Amazon’s new headquarters is soon to be decided as 20 remaining cities advance to the final stage of the Amazon HQ2 pageant. In a search for criteria that may be the deciding factor, competition enthusiasts discovered that the location proposal mentions preferences towards an area with access to salvaged wood and renewable energy. These preferences are in line with the company’s promise to go 100% renewable, and could end up being one of the most influential aspects behind which city gets chosen.
Vindeby Offshore Wind Farm near Lolland in the south east of Denmark was constructed in 1991 as a demonstration project which was to prove whether it was possible to generate green power offshore. The world’s first offshore wind farm was a great success, but after more than 25 years of operation, the Vindeby wind turbines were worn down, and DONG Energy therefore decided to decommission the wind farm.
The first out of five wind turbine in the world’s first floating wind farm, Hywind Scotland pilot park, has left Stord for its destination, Scotland.
Wind energy costs have—historically—declined dramatically. But will they continue to? One of America’s preeminent renewable technology and policy experts Ryan Wiser answers this and more.
The Block Island Wind Farm is a 30 MW offshore wind farm located approximately three miles southeast of Block Island in Rhode Island state waters. The wind farm consists of five Haliade turbines generating over 125,000 MWh annually – enough to power over 17,000 homes. Installed in August 2016, Block Island is America’s first offshore wind farm.
