World’s Largest Wind Farm Given the Green Light Off Britain

The largest wind farm in the world has been given the green light in the UK. Wind power has grown rapidly in Britain in the past decade with the help of strong winds and suitable geography. This clean, sustainable energy source is currently producing 10 percent of Britain's energy needs.

In a recent statement this past Wednesday, offshore wind developer Dong Energy reported that a final decision had been made to construct the 1.2 gigawatts Hornsea Project One scheme off the coast of Yorkshire in northern England.

The massive development offshore is generating industry onshore. A factory is currently being developed in Hull, due to open in September, which will manufacture the enormous turbines. Energy went on to state that the development of Hornsea Project One will produce 2,000 jobs, and it will hire 300 employees once the project is complete.

Scheduled for completion by 2020, the colossal development would cross 407 square kilometers and use 174 wind turbines, each one 190 meters tall – almost twice the size of Big Ben or 10 Angels of the North.

This recent development places Britain on the glide path to meet pledges made at the World Climate Change Conference 2015 (COP21) to limit greenhouse gas emissions in Paris last year.
