New Wind Energy Farm in the UK

Construction started on what will be Europe’s largest onshore wind farm while the UK government began its consultation into how best to bring about a five-fold increase in renewable energy generation. The new Whitelee wind farm is located in Scotland and will be operated by ScottishPower. The farm is expected to harness enough wind energy to power 200,000 homes.

Whitelee is Europe’s largest onshore wind farm, and it Whitelee represents a good step forward for the UK on the green energy front and in tackling climate change.

A key question is whether the most effective way of increasing the amount of clean energy we produce is by the ‘banding’ of the Renewables Obligation (RO) for different types of renewable energy. This gives a greater economic incentive for the renewables sector to generate more power from emerging technologies such as offshore wind farms and biomass plants while tailoring support to cheaper technologies like landfill gas and co-firing.

While expanding the large-scale renewables sector the government is also looking to increase the amount of smaller-scale, localized electricity production.

Personalities mentioned: ScottishPower chief executive Philip Bowman

Btw, an update…I just browsed through the above link once again and found a related link at the site that provided some interesting inputs wind energy as a form of renewable energy. Some tidbits: (see the full article here, written by Rich Bowden)
1. Wind power geenration has grown 12 – fold in the last 10 years
2. The largest single wind farm in the U.S. at present is the Stateline Wind Energy Center, situated along the Oregon-Washington border
3. The turbines work as a type of reverse fan, using the wind to make electricity instead of an electrical current to make wind
4. Wind energy was first used in Europe in the 12th century to mill grain (interesting!)

So, interesting times ahead for wind energy, that’s for sure. One question remains through, and that’s if wind energy can be of direct or indirect use for our transportation fuel needs – remember, a large percentage of oil dependency comes from our need to use it in our cars and buses! Guess I need to do some research on this before I revert…ciao for now
