Wind renewable energy

Wind renewable energy uses large blades to spin a dynamo inside the turbine. Many countries have access to wind, although supply is intermittent. Onshore wind turbines are fairly cheap and easy to run. However, they have less generation capacity than offshore wind turbines, which have a stronger and more predictable supply of wind but are more expensive to install and can be difficult to maintain.

The UK has great wind renewable energy potential, particularly in the off-shore market, and around 40% of Europe’s wind resource blows over the UK.
