As of 2020, onshore wind is the biggest single technology in Scotland and is the country’s main source of renewable power, accounting for 70 per cent of installed capacity and generating around two thirds of all renewable electricity output in Scotland. With growing capacity of wind farms in Scotland, there has been a significant increase in renewable electricity output, which has more than tripled from 8,003 GWh in 2007 to 30,521 GWh in 2019.  Renewable electricity is now equivalent to approximately 90 % of Scotland’s electricity consumption.
