Energy suppliers have benefited from the uptake of renewable energy generating projects, with one company due to build more wind turbines in Europe.
ScottishPower is expected to launch a partnership on the continent in order to expand its green electricity generating capacity, the Scotsman reported.
Talks have been held between the energy supplier and Germany, Poland and another European state, the newspaper said.
Meanwhile, ScottishPower has celebrated the energy efficiency achievements made by Severn Wye Energy Agency, which used a £19,000 grant from the energy company's green energy trust to install a 5.9kW solar system.
Since fitting the photovoltaic panels, the body has reduced its energy consumption by almost a third.
"With the support of ScottishPower we were able to install a solar system which has exceeded our expectations, generating around 11 per cent more than predicted in year one," said director Catrin Maby.
"It has also allowed us to play our part in educating the next generation and help them to understand the contribution that solar power can make to our energy needs in the UK."
