Scotland just produced enough wind energy to power all its homes twice over



7/15/19 | CNBC

Wind turbines in Scotland generated 9,831,320 megawatt hours between January and June 2019, WWF Scotland said Monday.

The numbers, which were supplied by WeatherEnergy, mean that Scottish wind generated enough electricity to power the equivalent of 4.47 million homes for six months. That is almost double the number of homes in Scotland, according to WWF Scotland.

"Up and down the country, we are all benefiting from cleaner energy and so is the climate," Robin Parker, climate and energy policy manager at WWF Scotland, said in a statement Monday.

"These figures show harnessing Scotland's plentiful onshore wind potential can provide clean, green electricity for millions of homes across not only Scotland, but England as well," Parker added.

By 2030, the Scottish government says it wants to produce half of the country's energy consumption from renewables. It is also targeting an "almost completely" decarbonized energy system by 2050... more: https://www.cnbc.com/2019/07/15/scotland-has-produced-enough-wind-energy-to-power-its-homes-twice-over.html

1. What happens if there isn't enough wind?

2. It's pretty much 24/7 in the North Sea

But to answer your question, that's where hydrogen enters the picture

When there's too much wind power for the grid (think 2 AM when most Scots are fast asleep yet the wind is blowing like a hurricane) make hydrogen.

Then, when demand picks up or the wind stops, use the H2 to create electricity with a fuel cell

3. The hardest I ever saw Ted Kennedy fight was to keep wind turbines away

From his vacation home.

4. There are morons in both parties

Why is it that there are 14 different kinds of toilet paper in the market but everyone in the US has to choose between 2 utterly corrupt "parties" full of criminals and psychopaths?

Ted wasn't exactly the gifted one in the Kennedy Klan.

5. I like renewables provided they are practical and economically

Reasonable. Good for Scotland if this works for them.
