Onshore wind farms in UK could cut 50 a year off energy bills

Government ministers face rising calls to lift their block on onshore wind farms to help meet the UK’s ambitious climate targets while reducing home energy bills.

Some of Europe’s largest energy investors have urged the government to overturn an effective ban on new onshore wind farms in England, warning that it may be stifling a flood of investment into the UK’s clean energy sector.

Peter Dickson, a partner at Glennmont Partners, which manages Europe’s largest ever clean energy fund, is among those urging the government to change its stance. He said if the UK is “serious” about climate crisis target “policymakers must encourage all forms of renewable power generation.”

“This includes revisiting proposals for developing onshore wind in the UK,” he said.
