A milestone was reached for renewable energy in November when more than 100% of Scotland’s electricity demand was met by wind turbines for the first time – enough for nearly six million homes. Scottish weather is powering a revolution. With ever-larger wind turbines being built at sea, and wave and tidal power being developed, the problem will soon be how to use this surplus energy. Some is already exported to England via interconnector cables and in 2020 there will be another running from the Aberdeen area to Norway. But this will not be enough and the race is on to find ways to store cheap energy to sell back to the grid when demand is high. Large batteries are helping, but another proven method is pump storage. This uses virtually free surplus electricity at night to pump water into upland reservoirs to be used to power turbines during peak periods.

Cipriani’s opposite number Gareth Steenson kicked three conversions and a penalty as Gloucester managed two Jason Woodward touchdowns and a Tom Hudson try, plus a Billy Twelvetrees conversion. But they also left Munster in pole position for a quarter-final place if they beat French champions Castres on … [Read more...] about Exeter turn tables on Gloucester to breathe life into Champions Cup campaign

Susie Goodall’s comments came hours after arriving back on dry land in the Chilean southern city of Punta Arenas on Friday, where she was met by her mother and brother. The family smiled and hugged before they joined her in an ambulance for a medical check-up in the port city, which is located about 1,200 miles from Santiago. The 29-year-old was the youngest entrant and the only woman in the Golden Globe competition that began on July 1 in Les Sables-d’Olonne, France. A violent storm ripped off her mast and flung her yacht end over end on December 5. Race officials were in regular radio contact with Ms Goodall, who was 2,000 miles west of Cape Horn near the southern … [Read more...] about Rescued sailor Susie Goodall would do it all again ‘in a heartbeat’
