About Kent Wind Energy

About Kent Wind Energy

 

By 2020 the UK aims to have reduced its CO2 emissions by over 30% compared to 1990 levels. It is obliged under EU laws to generate 15% of its energy from renewable sources by this date. The largest single source of this renewable energy is set to come from wind.

Offshore wind energy has been the world’s fastest growing renewable energy source for the last 8 years. As the costs of generating fall and the urgent international need to tackle CO2 emissions and prevent climate change grows, it’s a trend that’s set to continue. As the windiest country in Europe and world leader in offshore technology, the potential exists to meet the UKs energy needs several times over.

Development has already been happening around the Kent coast with the construction of some of the largest projects in the world to date.

Kentwindenergy.co.uk is a local network, online directory and information resource that supports local supply chain development and puts offshore wind farm developers in touch with local businesses. The simple-to-use directory allows people to search by category or company for services covering project development, equipment design and manufacture, construction and operation, as well as more general support such as accommodation, recruitment and office supplies.

Developed in partnership with leading offshore wind companies, kentwindenergy.co.uk is completely FREE to sign up to and already has more than 400 local companies registered. You can register your business easily by simply following the link on the directory pages.

The network and directory is managed by Kent County Council with support from Vattenfall and London Array, two of the largest wind farm developers in the UK.
