Largest Offshore Wind Energy Project In World To Be Built In UK

Largest Offshore Wind Energy Project In World To Be Built In UK

Dong Energy is moving ahead with what will be, once completed, the largest offshore wind energy project in the world -- the 1.2 gigawatt (GW) Hornsea project. Development costs for the project -- which will be built off the northeastern coast of the UK, and provide enough electricity to provide for the needs of roughly 1 million households -- will run several billion pounds.

Dong Energy has revealed that the project will represent its largest investment to date into offshore wind energy. The project is expected to cover an area of more than 400 square kilometers once completed. The company is expecting to put at least £6 billion into the UK's wind market by 2020.

The CEO of Dong Energy in the UK, Brent Cheshire, stated: “We are making a major financial investment to construct this giant wind farm and this underlines our commitment to the UK market. Hornsea Project One will support the supply chain and help create local jobs. To have the world’s biggest ever offshore wind farm located off the Yorkshire coast is hugely significant, and highlights the vital role offshore wind will play in the UK’s need for new low-carbon energy.”

The UK's secretary of state for energy and climate change, Amber Rudd, stated: “The UK is the world leader in offshore wind energy and this success story is going from strength to strength. The investment shows that we are open for business and is a vote of confidence in the UK and our plan to tackle the legacy of under investment and build an energy infrastructure fit for the twenty first century.”

The project will be composed of (a lot of) 7 megawatt (MW) wind turbines, each towering more than 190 meters in height. The majority, or possibly all, of these wind turbines will be built in a Siemens factory in Hull.

Roughly 2000 construction jobs are expected to be created, and up to 300 permanent ones.

Japan May Set 30% Renewable Energy By 2030 Target

Japan is still recovering from the Fukushima crisis and adapting. Its energy market has gone through big changes, but big changes are still to come. As with many other countries around the world, there is strong support for renewable energy and a strong push to transition to those clean energy options.

Japan's current renewable energy target is 20% by 2030, so bringing that to 30% by 2030 would be a significant increase.

Japan's solar power industry has been growing strong, and the country is even pioneering floating solar power plants. In 2014, Japan is projected to have the second-largest solar market in the world. However, some projections even have it above China (widely projected to be the #1 solar market).

Of course, there are other renewable energy indusries, such as the wind power and geothermal industries, and Japan has strong wind and geothermal resources as well.

Nothing is official yet, but look out for an announcement soon from the Japan government regarding a revised 30% by 2030 target.
