Did anyone else hear the PM announce upping the Offshore Wind target from 30 GW to 40? In among all the awful news that was a moment of brightness...


Splendid news.

The storms we have been having have been good for wind. Averaged over 10GW for the whole of February so far (23rd). More power from wind and solar than from gas and coal. Carbon intensity just over 200g/KWh

So much for high winds shutting down wind turbines. And I've not heard of any being blown over either which is another anti wind turbine bleat.

Government removes block on onshore wind from bidding for fixed price subsidies alongside solar. Still needs local planning permission for schemes.

Wind just had its best month ever, producing more than coal and gas combined, and dropping CO2 to below 200 g CO2/kWh
For the first time ever. Half way to 2030 target of 100.
