Today BBC Scotland, reports:
Scotland generates record amount of renewable electricityhttps://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-63229402
They tell us how much – “7,358 gigawatt hours (GWh)” – was produced in just April, May and June 2022, but don’t tell us what percentage of total demand was met by that 3 month figure.
Back in 2020, they told us:
Renewables met 97% of Scotland’s electricity demand in 2020https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-56530424
As you can see they did tell us the percentage of demand met over the whole year but didn’t mention how many GWh. For the same 2nd quarter in 2020, it was:
Now what percentage of Scotland’s demands is that? If 5 789 GWh did 97% then 7 358 GWh did 123.29% of Scotland’s demand.
UK demand? If as the above gov.uk report suggests, 5.789 GWh met 25% of UK demand, then 7 358 GWh met 31.77% of UK demand.
While reading the gov.uk data, I wondered what the quarter 1 figures were – 11 210GWh! Do the math?
