The UK Government has formally declared a Climate Emergency. Coal plant is being phased out by 2025, meanwhile electric vehicles, hydrogen heating and heat pumps are all taking off across the UK. To ensure society’s growing thirst for electricity is sustainable – generation from renewables is key. Offshore wind can meet this demand at scale.
Offshore wind is one of the most cost-effective means of reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The Government has set a target to deliver over a third of UK electricity from Offshore Wind by 2030, up from 10% today. Rampion 2 can make a significant contribution towards this goal.
The UK is an island benefitting from the jet stream, which offers a temperate climate and our famous wet and windy weather. The UK is the windiest country in Europe so it makes sense to harness this wind to generate our electricity.
