Wind Power

The global community has to, and is in the process of changing the way it generates and uses energy. Governments around the world are focussed  on finding ways of  producing energy in a safe, sustainable and environmentally friendly way. Great empahsis is  also being placed on eliminating  wasteful energy use.  All these initiatives are aimed at  reducing the amount of green house gases produced, and released into the atmosphere.  The scientific community regularly warn us that the average temperature of the world is increasing, leading to climate change. The UK Government recently stated that it wants to see harmful carbon emissions  reduced by 50% before 2050.

In April 2002, the Government put in place the Renewables Obligation legislation.  All electricity suppliers are required to source 10% of their supply from renewable technologies by 2010.  The UK is often referred to as the green powerhouse of Europe, and wind is at the forefront of helping to meet and beat that target.

As a nation, we have to greatly increase the contribution renewable technology makes in heating our homes, in the delivery of our public services and helping to  grow our economy. Currently, wind technology is helping generate the cheapest source of renewable energy available. The cost of electricity generated  using wind technologies, competitively compare to those paid for electricity from conventional power plants.
