Scots are now among the most prolific users of green energy in Europe,
beating renewable powerhouse nations like Denmark and Germany.
New figures have prompted fresh calls for control over energy to be
devolved to Holyrood and a cut to renewable subsidies.
Scotland was the fourth largest consumer of green energy in the EU in 2016,
with 54 per cent of its electricity provided by renewables, according to
statistics compiled by the Scottish Parliament Information Centre (SPICe).
This is more than twice as much as the average for England, Wales and
Northern Ireland.
More than two thirds of Scotland’s electricity came from renewables in 2017
– a 15 per cent rise in one year and a threefold increase since 2007.
