BWEA calls for more investment in turbines

Jun 05 2009

The British Wind Farm Energy Association (BWEA) is calling for more investment in wind turbines.

Speaking this week, the BWEA said there is an appetite amongst industry and private investors to create more renewable energy in this way.

These latest comments come after Newcastle consultancy TNEI launched a software system to aid the design and construction of windfarms.

"There is a market for (windfarm) projects in planning. According to the government's renewable energy strategy we need from three gigawatts onshore [which is what we currently have] to 14 giggawatts by 2020," a spokesman for the BWEA claimed.

He pointed out that to date, all investment for windfarms has come from private capital, with no government funding.

The UK recently signed up to the Renewable Energy Directive, which aims to increase eight-fold the amount of renewable energy currently produced in the country.
