Throughout history, communities have harnessed the power of wind. Driven by the need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and secure home-grown energy supplies, wind energy is the world’s fastest growing renewable energy. Being one of the windiest country in Europe, Britain could power itself several times over using wind. Britain accounted for more than half of the new offshore wind power capacity built in Europe last year, as the sector broke installation records across the continent.
