Onshore Wind Vital for Low Carbon UK

The Welsh Government, along with Welsh energy and environmental groups have joined forces to force the UK to provide incentives for the use of onshore wind and solar power generation.

Currently, subsidies are provided for offshore wind, biomass and marine energy, excluding onshore wind and solar.

A power generation source the Welsh Government sees as a vital opportunity across the UK.

Lesley Griffiths, the Welsh Energy Secretary states that the UK has provided over £9 billion into the renewables sector and as a result costs have fallen significantly.

However, she adds: “the rapid changes in the UK Government’s policy has decimated large parts of the renewable sector, with potentially valuable developments to Wales stopped in their tracks by UK Ministers.”

“In 2015 alone, four new wind developments in mid-Wales with an installed capacity of over 300MW were refused by UK Government.”

“We believe that lowest cost technologies, such as onshore wind and solar, present the best opportunities to manage the costs of generation to energy bills.”

“They also offer Welsh businesses and our rural economy the opportunity to be more resilient and self-sufficient in a future outside of the EU.”

A BEIS spokesperson stated that the UK will remain a global low carbon leader: “Our successful, competitive approach to providing support for renewables has led to a significant fall in the cost of clean electricity by as much as 50% with five Welsh clean electricity projects already receiving support.”
