IHS Highlights “Unprecedented Solar PV Boom” In UK #cleantech

You are correct Michael, The main thing that is stopping solar reaching it’s maximum potential is the amount of cloud that the area gets. With the UK, there’s areas along the south coast (where I live – and have PV) which are sheltered by the continent and so don’t get that much cloud. For the rest of the UK, there’s more cloud so solar is not as good as it could be. BUT, we get a lot of wind (ex huricanes from America on the Jet stream for example) and quite big tides so we’ve harnessed those as well. We’ve also got one of the major reaserch and development areas for wind and ocean power in Scotland. I also seem to recall a post recently which said that wind generated about 60%(80%?) of total demand so far in Scotland (Although my figures may be out). We’ve also got an offshore wind farm generating very nicely as well in the north sea. It’s horses-for-courses here. Whatev...
