Urgent action needed to stop UK falling short of renewables goal for net zero

RenewableUK is today warning that the UK is significantly off track to meet the level of onshore wind needed to achieve the legally-binding 2050 net zero emissions target. New analysis from the industry body shows that shows that without a change in policy, onshore wind capacity is expected to fall nearly 40% short of the target by 2030.

The Committee on Climate Change advised Government that onshore wind capacity needs to expand by at least 1GW a year to achieve our net zero emissions target, reaching 35GW by 2035. This would require approximately 29GW to be installed by 2030.... ... More: Official Press Release RenewableUK
