However to meet the government’s targets of producing 15% of the country’s energy from renewable sources by 2020, we are going to need a lot more wind farms. The UK is ideally suited for offshore generation, not only do we have ample winds but also shallow seas that make it cheaper and easier to install the huge turbines.
