UK Wind Energy gets powerful boost

Climate Energy

wind energyFollowing the recent announcement from the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) regarding the go-ahead for two large wind farms (11 July), Climate Energy’s Principal Consultant for Sustainable technologies, Tom Vosper says:

“The granting of planning consent for two major new wind farms will add substantial additional capacity to the UK’s wind energy market.  Triton Knoll (which will be the world’s largest offshore wind farm) and Pen y Cymoedd (the largest onshore development in England and Wales), together represent a staggering 15% of the UK’s wind market. When complete they will provide electricity for nearly a million homes.

These developments will make a really great contribution to our renewable energy targets and our energy stability overall.  However, local communities are almost always affected by the onshore infrastructure. We hope the developers act sensitively so that local impacts are minimised and support for wind across the board can rise.“
