Key areas in the report:
Overall review of the commercial wind energy market in the UK
and its contribution to renewable energy in the UK.
In-depth analysis of the onshore and offshore wind markets
including technology, costs, operational wind farms, projects in
development and in planning.
In-depth analysis of plans to build an additional 32GW of offshore
and 14GW of onshore wind capacity by 2020
costs and timetable for construction and key players involved.
of key issues affecting the wind energy market new
government, planning system, capital & operational costs, supply
chain issues, turbine availability, grid & transmission issues.
Areas of particular interest:-
total future investment costs for 32GW of offshore wind
and 14GW of onshore wind are estimated to be
as much as
make the wind energy sector one of the fastest growing markets.
wind energy firmly on the new coalition governments agenda, the
report explores the market opportunities ahead for the
construction industry and the wider
from current operating capacities represents a tremendous challenge
sector, necessitating an average build rate of around 950MW
onshore wind per year and around 2.2GW of offshore wind per year to
forward wind energy pipeline is very healthy, with 2.4GW of
onshore and offshore capacity under construction, 6.5GW consented and
around 9.9GW in planning.
Given the trend
towards larger turbine sizes in both offshore and onshore
projects, the completion of many projects will be increasingly
influenced by wind turbine availability. There is a supply/demand
imbalance in the turbine market, but both
and Siemens have announced plans to set up
turbine factories in the UK.
