A very good piece of writing by Maria Caffrey published today in the Guardian summarises the reasons why onshore wind is a key part of the UK energy mix, now and in the future. Three key stats for you;
* One quarter of Scotland's electricity was supplied by renewables in Q4 of 2010
* A large wind turbine in the UK supplies, on average, 50% more energy than the same sized tubine erected in Germany
* 10,000 people are employed in the UK wind sector and this is expanding.
