Renewable energy on target
According to latest energy statistics, Britain is more than halfway to hitting its 2020 renewable-generated electricity targets. Investment in offshore wind farms has had a significant impact on the commercial marine industry, represented at Seawork.
Figures for the second quarter of 2013 show that 15.5% of Britain’s generated electricity came from renewables, with offshore wind turbines generating 50% more power than in the same period last year.
According to The Times, power from wind turbines now makes up about half of renewables. By the end of next year, Europe’s largest wind farm – Gwynt y Môr off the coast of North Wales – will start generating, although the title will move to London Array.
According to Seawork supporting organisation RenewableUK, a total of 2.75 gigawatts of onshore and offshore wind farms are under construction.
The offshore wind industry is well represented at the Seawork exhibition, on the pontoons and at the conference, with several vessel builders and associated suppliers all in attendance.
