One of the world’s best energy resources is all around us, in the seas. In the UK and Europe’s North Seas especially, high and constant wind speeds can be found in its shallow waters, providing perfect conditions for bottom fixed foundations. It’s time that we all make the most of this clean energy resource.
For this reason, the UK aims to become the word leader in green energy. Government has recently outlined aims to make the country the main player in clean wind energy – creating jobs, slashing carbon emissions and boosting exports. Being at the forefront of the green industrial revolution will accelerate progress towards their goal to net zero emissions by 2050.
Britain is already a big player in the green energy movement, having the world’s largest offshore wind capacity which already meets 10% of its electricity demands. However new investments will be made to upgrade ports and infrastructure. In a recent statement, UK prime minister, Boris Johnson set out commitments to reach the new green energy promise. Head to the Gov website to view the commitments in more detail.
The North Seas can lead the change for a green future. Wind farms are being built further out in deeper sea waters, this boosts capacity even further where winds are strongest.
