In order to combat climate change we need to move to more renewable ways to generate it. Lucky for us, we don’t need to figure out what these are because some of the answers are already out there. One of them is offshore wind power and the UK has just committed to using more of it. Yay!
The government and the wind industry have come to an agreement that the UK will be receiving 30% of their energy from offshore wind-farms by 2030. This is really great news, not just for the environment but also for the people who live near the places where the sites where be located as they will have more job opportunities. It’s really a win-win. Or a wind-win, if you would.
Previously, less than 10% of the UK’s power was generated by wind. This marks a big step forward to a greener future.
