...Although Atmos would not release the wind speeds it had recorded within each zone, it said that Moray, Forth and Norfolk had been found to respectively produce 42%, 25% and 10% more power each year than Hornsea.

The conclusions will further underline the importance of Scottish territorial waters to the offshore wind industry. Given that Norfolk is further south than Hornsea, it also challenges the long-held assumption that wind speeds are greater further north.

Jenny Hogan, senior wind energy officer at Scottish Renewables, said: "This study helps us to see more clearly the picture of the rich wind resource that Scotland boasts. We already knew Scotland had a quarter of Europe's wind resource, but this work shows just how competitive these individual Scottish North Sea sites are.

"There is a huge prize to be won by Scotland in generating clean green energy to help combat climate change, reduce our dependence on imported fuels and create jobs - this positive new data should build even more investor confidence that the prize is in our reach."...

We know that you'd like us to stay, "Nigel", but you'd get so blown away.

It doesn't matter as the scottish lords and ladies wont allow the turbines or pylons to spoil their view anyway.

If scotland was smart it would throw all the big landowners in the north sea, turn the highlands into the worlds biggest chain of hydro-electric damn system and become the world biggest exporter of energy, supplying half of europe.

But they don't want to upset lord whats-his-face of whats-it-called.

Those lords and ladies are mostly Arabs these days - we've already got the largest windfarm in Europe already...

Eaglesham Wind Farm

Now just imagine if the Gvt had invested in UK based turbine production - as it is I remember seeing dozens of huge turbines stockpiled at Amsterdam dock waiting for export out to the world..

Fking wasted opportunity as usual.... :angry:
