The UK is the windiest country in Europe and could power itself several times over using wind. Throughout history, communities have harnessed the power of the wind. Driven by the need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and secure home-grown energy supplies, wind energy is the world's fastest growing renewable energy type.
As the most mature and cost-effective source of renewable energy, onshore wind is expected to continue making an affordable, clean and significant contribution to the UK’s energy mix. Find out more.
The UK has been the world leader in offshore wind since October 2008, with as much capacity already installed as the rest of the world combined. Find out more.
31 October - 4 November 2016 is Offshore Wind Week
To continue developing into the next decade and beyond, offshore wind requires sustained political support from Government and Parliament. RenewableUK and partner companies are working to deliver Offshore Wind Week 2016, to celebrate the growth of this industry and the benefits it is delivering for Britain. Bringing together companies from across the UK, Offshore Wind Week aims to help deepen policymakers understanding of, and support for, the offshore wind industry. Find out more.
