Holyrood’s Landmark agreement will enable onshore wind in Scotland reports on the launch of the onshore wind sector deal for Scotland. The Deal was launched during the second annual Holyrood Climate Action Summit.

We’re proud to have played a part in the development of this landmark agreement for the wind industry’s (through Scottish Renewables) and The Scottish Government’s Sector Deal.

The Onshore Wind Sector Deal sets out a series of key measures which will support the Scottish Government in reaching its target of 20GW onshore wind by 2030 – more than double Scotland’s current operational capacity of 9.3GW.

Claire Mack, Chief Executive at Scottish Renewables, said: “An incredible amount of hard work has gone in to making this deal happen and it is a real benefit to the industry knowing that the time onshore wind farms take to go through planning will be halved to only 12 months. It is also encouraging to see onshore wind farm operators and the Scottish Government committed to creating a sustainable solution and a circular economy supply chain for the recycling of wind turbine component parts.”
