The renewable giant with a small carbon footprint
Representing one of the most cost-effective and efficient renewable energy technologies, onshore wind is a clean, safe, and reliable way of generating electricity that, once all infrastructure is put in place, produces no greenhouse gas emissions.
As the global climate worsens and fossil fuels become increasingly scarce, renewable energy sources are becoming ever more important in meeting our future energy needs, and wind power is no exception.
Whilst achieving consistent power generation can be challenging on land, onshore wind turbines' infrastructure and maintenance costs are almost half the cost of their offshore counterparts. Onshore wind farms also provide a quick return on investment, with payback often occurring within just two years on average.
Onshore and offshore wind farming are crucial components of the energy transition as they will enable us to decarbonise our energy grid and mitigate the harmful effects of greenhouse gas emissions.
