Quotes

"It also shows that wind is a dependable and reliable source of power in every month of year - including high summer."
Greencoat Wind UK chairman Tim Ingram said: "We are pleased to increase our investment portfolio to 16 UK wind farms with net generating capacity of 271.5MW. AES is the fifth seller of wind farms to UKW, a testament to the company's independence and to its ability to be selective in its acquisitions."
"Government needs to accept that actually 2019 is not that far away," McCaffery says. "Government clearly understands this about our nuclear programme—setting prices out to 2023... Offshore wind needs similar visibility. This means providing access to CfDs (Contracts for Difference) before the second allocation round all the way to 2020/21, as well as action to establish a new Levy Control Framework which will fund projects—renewable, nuclear and carbon capture and storage—in the 2020s. To develop an offshore wind farm can take 10 years. But right now we only have knowledge of support for six years and access to CfDs on a four-year horizon."
Wind power has generated a new record high of 22% of the UK "s electricity over a 24-hour period, industry body RenewableUK said."
