Our new report, Quantifying the Benefits of Onshore Wind to the UK, shows that deploying 35 GW of onshore wind by 2035 could reduce UK electricity costs by 7%, support 31,000 jobs, lift productivity throughout the UK and enable a £360m export industry. The Committee on Climate Change (CCC) recently recommended that the UK government adopt a net zero emissions target by 2050, which would require a significant acceleration of onshore wind deployment. This recommendation was accepted by the UK Government and Parliament has now legislated to set the 2050 net zero target.
