Renewable energy project developers 'have not met targets'

Renewable energy project developers 'have not met targets'
A new study claims that renewable energy project directors have failed to meet targets, despite billions of pounds of grants to the wind industry.

The report by the Renewable Energy Foundation, revealed the UK has fallen short of its ten percent renewable electricity target with just 6.5 percent coming from energy-efficient sources in 2010.

Speaking to the Scotsman, John Constable, director of policy and research for the foundation – which is a critic of wind industry subsidies – asked whether it was value for money that targets have not been met after a large investment.

The foundation said that part of the reason for missing the target could have been low wind levels in 2010.

However, it added that even excessive wind over the year would not have led to success.

Recently, new plans were submitted for a wind farm to the north-east of Darlington, according to NEBusiness.co.uk, with Banks Renewables hoping to situate on land near Barmpton.ADNFCR-1235-ID-800500102-ADNFCR
