New research by a team of UK scientists has located the site of the massive impact that took place in Scotland 1.2 billion years ago. Roughly one billion years ago, Earth experienced a higher rate of meteorite impact than it does today.
Onshore wind farms in Scotland have posted a record-level of electricity generation for the start of the year.
Using high-precision cameras mounted to an aerial drone researchers from Scotland captured the volcano in hundreds of aerial photographs to later create a 3D map of the volcano’s surface.
Scotland is set to become the first UK nation to ban plastic straws, as part of plans to cut down on single-use plastics.
The hope is that the ban will cut down on the country’s contribution to ocean plastic, possibly even by half.
Larger wind farms with taller turbines are to be built across rural Scotland, under government's plan to generate half of the country’s energy needs from renewable sources.
Scotland takes a big step toward exploring universal basic income.
Scotland has hit its 2020 emission targets five years early and has gone from delivering 10 per cent to 60 per cent of its electricity consumption from renewable sources over the past 15 years.
The world’s first floating wind farm is now feeding into Scotland’s electricity grid.
Known as the East Anglia THREE, the planning consent granted today allows for the instillation of 172 ‘next generation’ turbines, each of which stands 247 meters in height.
New technology has enable the World's first floating wind farm to be constructed and the platform has emerged, for its first public viewing, off coast of Scotland.
Scottish wind turbines sent more than 1.2 million megawatt hours of electricity to the National Grid in March. The turbines produced enough electricity to meet the electrical needs of 136 % of Scottish households.
