Wind Energy – Onshore & Offshore

Wind is a form of solar energy which is the outcome of irregular heating of the atmosphere by the sun, the anomalies of the earth’s surface and the rotation of the earth.

Wind energy is the energy obtained from the wind as a result of its path through the blades of a wind turbine causing it to rotate and produce kinetic energy which in result produces electricity.

With over 8,000 megawatts (MW) generation at the beginning of 2013, the United Kingdom has been ranked the world’s eighth largest producers of wind power. However, there is still a vast unexploited amount of wind energy in the UK. The recent government policies on energy and the on-going advances in wind turbine development have attracted a lot of investors and developers to wind farm development.
