Plans for a 21 turbine wind farm near Lockerbie have been refused.
The Scottish Energy Minister Fergus Ewing ruled out the plans. He said: "We want to see the right developments in the right places. That is why I have refused permission for the proposed wind farm at Newfield, which would have brought unacceptable impacts on the landscape.”
AES, the company behind the plans for the wind farm at Newfield, says it's disappointed as the site could have contributed to Scotland's target of creating all its electricity from renewable sources.
The farm was expected to support 100 jobs and generate contracts worth £26 million to the Scottish economy.
An offshore wind farm in Cumbria will be extended as part of a government green scheme.
The expansion of the Walney Offshore Wind Farm is one of eight projects across the UK involved in the Electricity Market Reform programme.
The programme is expected to create 8,500 jobs across the UK by 2020 and will start generating power in 2017.
The programme will help the UK meet the renewable energy target and lower emissions.
Since 2010 the share of renewable electricity in the UK has doubled.
The Electricity Market Reform programme is expected to deliver 30 per cent of renewable energy in 2020.
“By themselves they will bring green jobs and growth across the UK, but they are a significant part of our efforts to give Britain cleaner and more secure energy.
“These are the first investments from our reforms to build the world's first low carbon electricity market - reforms which will see competition and markets attract tens of billions of pounds of vital energy investment whilst reducing the costs of clean energy to consumers."
– Edward Davey, Energy and Climate Change Secretary
Scottish and English councils on both sides of the border are clubbing together to come up with combined strategies for things like renewable energy, transport and tourism. They'll now meet up regularly. It's an attempt to help boost their economies.
