Leading solar energy generator predicts solar boom in Scotland – whatever the weather

Lightsource CEO Nick Boyle with Fergus Ewing MSP

Scotland is leading the way in the UK for renewable energy generation with nearly 50 per cent of its electricity needs being provided through renewable sources, mainly via wind and hydro energy technologies. Recent developments in solar photovoltaics (PV) have revolutionised our ability to harness the power of the sun making solar PV technology a realistic, cost-effective, and sustainable energy source worldwide. For Scotland, solar PV energy generation is quickly emerging as a complimentary local energy source which will help meet the nation’s 2020 targets of the equivalent of 100 per cent of gross annual electricity demand from renewable energy generation.

Lightsource Renewable Energy is Europe’s leading solar PV electricity generator, producing the equivalent of enough electricity to power over 200,000 UK households. The company affirms its investment to Scotland with the opening of its new office in Livingston this month by Energy Minster, Fergus Ewing. At the event, Mr. Ewing stated there is “a significant role” for solar PV to play in Scotland.
