The UK wind industry expressed disappointment as the Government’s Climate Change Programme failed to identify the additional support needed to ensure that offshore wind projects, essential to meeting the climate and renewables targets, are delivered on time.

The BWEA, as part of its submission to the Climate Review, had called on the government to make additional financial support available for offshore wind projects, of which some 2,000MW could be built by 2010. Without this long-term additional support, the future of the UK’s offshore wind energy programme is in doubt.
