Airtricity gains foothold in Scotland

Irish green electricity trader and developer Eirtricity has formed a subsidiary company in Scotland. Known as Airtricity, it is currently concentrating its Scottish activities on developing wind farms to sell green electricity under the new Renewables Obligation Scotland. "At the moment we want to gain a foothold as a developer. The renewables obligation presents opportunities as a wholesale trader," explains Eirtricity's Declan Flanagan. Airtricity already has a portfolio of eight sites, each of 30-50 MW. All are in Scotland's central belt and are in the early stages of development. Steve Cowie from Airtricity says the two most advanced sites are near Doune in Perthshire and at Gourock in Inverclyde.
