RenewableUK: Wind power brings three-fold benefits to UK



RenewableUK: Wind power brings three-fold benefits to UK
RenewableUK has claimed the benefits that the wind energy sector will bring to Britain are three-fold.

Nick Medic, head of communications at the marine and wind power trade body, said wind energy provides "a win-win scenario" for the country, as the technology will help the UK hit its carbon reduction targets and assure energy security.

Mr Medic also said that the wind power industry will provide a number of jobs, business opportunities and trickle-down effects for local communities by the year 2020.

"To some it might sound like hyperbole, but if you look at what we're really getting out of deploying wind energy, it's really three-fold," he explained.

Figures released by the European Wind Energy Association suggest that 2010 could be a big year for the wind power sector. Over 110 new offshore wind turbines were connected to the grid in the first half of the year, which have a collective capacity of 333 MW.

A further 16 offshore wind farms with the ability to supply 3,972 MW of power are also currently under construction in Europe.ADNFCR-1235-ID-19904714-ADNFCR
