Scotland on Track for Record Renewable Year
as noted above, i think the pie chart shows that they are including “nuclear” as “renewable energy” — odd. as for the confusing sentence/quote, it confused me at first as well. this one, right? — “We have seen momentous progress towards our goal of generating the equivalent of 100 per cent of Scotland’s electricity needs from renewables and more from other sources by 2020, with enough renewable energy capacity installed to more than meet our interim target of 31 per cent” I think the points are: by 2020, Scotland expects to get 100% of its electricity from “renewable energy” (though, that seems to include nuclear), but it will still be producing electricity from some other sources as well (coal & nat gas). it is on track to exceed its interim target of 31%. think that’s what it’s saying.
