The Way Forward – Offshore Wind

A huge offshore wind farm with 300 turbines, each taller than the Gherkin skyscraper in London, has been given the goahead. Greg Clerk, the business secretary, gave planning permission to the Homsea wind project, which will sit 55 miles off the Yorkshire coast and become the world’s biggest marinetbased wind farm. When completed, the Hornsea site, which will cost £6 billion to build, would generate a similar capacity to the Hinkley C nuclear project.
