Massive Wind Energy from the UK's windy shores first noted in Holistic Connection , November 2002
Greenpeace recently described as 'fantastic' a government report setting out a framework for the expansion of offshore wind energy. The report is intended to launch a consultation process on future development of wind farms at sea in the UK. The report shows that there is a massive clean energy resource in and over the UK's waters. In total it says that over 3000 Terawatt Hours (3 trillion units) of electricity could be generated. This is 10 times the whole of current UK demand and 40 times the output of all the UK's nuclear power stations.
