  Offshore wind farm praised


Friday 11 April 2008
wind farmEnergy giant E.ON’s aim to develop one of the UK’s largest wind farms, revealed earlier this week, have been welcomed by green group Friends of the Earth.

The Humber Gateway project, off the Holderness Coast, East Riding of Yorkshire, could have a full potential electricity capacity of 300MW.

“We are delighted E.ON is pushing forward with plans for a new wind farm off the Yorkshire Coast. The Humber Gateway wind farm will help tap into the abundant clean green energy resources we have in the UK,” said Friends of the Earths Energy Campaigner, Nick Rau. “Offshore wind has a key role in the fight against climate change and helping us switchto a low-carbon economy. Projects like this are a springboard to a massive expansion of offshore wind energy. The Government must do more to develop this huge potential and ensure that Britain reaps the massive economic and environmental benefits of becoming a world leader in harvesting the wind.”
