Quote: "“Scotland has 60 percent of the U.K.’s onshore wind capacity,” explained Scotland Development International (SDI) Manager for Renewable Energy and Low Carbon Technologies Tom Lamb. But the U.K. has had difficulty finding sites for more onshore wind. “The U.K. government needs to develop renewables to meet its Kyoto targets,” Lamb explained, “and without offshore wind, it isn’t going to make it.”
In 2009, Scotland initiated the development of 5,700 megawatts of offshore wind at nine sites within the 12-mile boundary of its territorial waters. In 2010, the Crown Estate announced the development of 4,800 more megawatts in two zones beyond the 12-mile limit off Scotland’s eastern coast in the Firth of Forth." See comments:
