Blow for UK Renewables as Wind Farm is Axed


A £4bn off-shore wind farm project has been axed by German ‘big six’ energy company RWE npower dealing an untimely blow to Britian’s renewable energy plans. The Atlantic Array of off-shore turbines was set to create thousands of jobs in the business electricity sector and provide power to around 1 million homes.RWE npower has said the economics of the project aren’t what they were made to be when the plan was initially drawn up – criticism that seems particularly pertinent given the German company’s claim that the Coalition Government treats environmental subsidies as a “political football”.
