Demand for wind turbines on remote Scottish sites remains strong despite a 5% cut in subsidies for onshore wind developments, claims a leading consultant.

According to Gordon Stewart, head of renewables at property management firm Bidwells, wind developers will continue to seek out potential Scottish sites and leasing out land for wind will continue to be lucrative for landowners.

He said that although the cut to subsidy support for onshore wind was not welcomed by industry, it did not signal the “death knell of onshore windfarming” or anything like it.
