Lobbying for more wind in Scottish Renewable Obligation

Google Translate

The BWEA's Scottish Branch is lobbying for a larger tranche for wind energy in the third Scottish Renewable Obligation (SRO-3). The SRO is undergoing a similar consultation process to NFFO-5. Ted Leeming from BWEA Scotland points out that under the last SRO, 150 wind bids were submitted, but only seven wind contracts awarded. "And a significant proportion of the tenders were under 3.5 pence per kWh," he adds. The association is also calling for a separate band for small wind schemes north of the border.
