Wind UK wind power portfolio reaches new milestone
posted by on Thursday, February 08, 2007 - 06:01 PM

gfoat writes "UK becomes 7th country in world to install over 2 gigawatts of wind energy. A windswept hill on the outskirts of Stirling in Scotland will today (Friday) see a significant milestone of achievement for the UK wind industry, as Secretary of State Alistair Darling cuts the ribbon to signal the commissioning of the turbine which takes the UK over the two gigawatts of installed capacity landmark. The generation and export to the grid of electricity from the Braes of Doune wind farm places the UK firmly among the top global wind markets, now one of only seven countries in the world to have surpassed this level of wind power."

Wind UK: Government and industry join forces
posted by on Monday, July 18, 2005 - 08:20 AM

gfoat writes "Government and industry join forces to find clear path for wind farms
Trials underway to reduce aviation objections to wind farms. Flight trials have commenced to demonstrate a technical solution that if successful, will be used to iron out objections to wind farms from the Ministry of Defence (MOD), National Air Traffic Services (NATS) and individual airport operators. This research could have a positive impact by freeing up a significant number of potential wind farm sites that are currently sterilised. The project is essential in helping to meet Government targets for renewable energy by 2010 and beyond while helping to meet the UK’s commitment to the Kyoto Protocol."

Following discussions between the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), MOD and Scottish Executive, a solution has been found to concerns that wind farms planned near the Eskdalemuir seismic array could interfere with the array’s role in monitoring the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty."
