A fifth of the electricity used in Scotland in 2007 came from renewable sources, official figures reveal. Statistics published by the Department of Energy and Climate Change show that 20.1% of electricity used in 2007 came from green sources – up from 16.9% the previous year. Energy minister Jim Mather claimed the figures show Scotland’s renewable power potential is being turned into reality and said the country is on track to exceed its target of having 31% of electricity demand met by renewables by 2011.
