Onshore Wind Generation to Save £1 billion

Onshore wind could save the UK £1 billion.

According to the Energy and Climate Intelligence Unit (ECIU), over the next 5 years savings of up to £1bn could be made with changes in policy and further construction of onshore wind facilities.

Onshore wind is the least expensive electricity generation technology in the UK but one which is currently underutilised.

Without further investment in new technology, Britain is set to place bottom of the list of comparable EU countries for wind farm efficiency.

Currently, 1GW of onshore wind would cost the UK £100 million per year less than energy generated from a new nuclear facility and £30 million less than new offshore wind installations.

Director of the ECIU, Richard Black stated: “The effective ban on the cheapest form of new power generation looks increasingly perverse.”

“For a government committed to making energy cheaper, this risks not only locking people into higher bills but also runs contrary to its aim of having the lowest energy costs in Europe.”
