Vattenfall responds to the Government's announcement today on onshore wind

With the news today that the Government has removed the de facto ban on onshore wind in England, Vattenfall has issued the following comment:

Vattenfall's Head of UK Onshore Development, Frank Elsworth, said:

“Immediately removing the de facto ban on onshore wind in England is a clear sign the new government intends to accelerate the energy transition. We look forward to seeing their wider proposals in the National Planning Policy Framework later this month, but should also remember that speeding up consent processes and committing to securing enough capacity through the annual Contracts for Difference auctions are also necessary.

“Onshore wind is one of the lowest cost options for improving our energy security, stabilising energy bills, bringing vital investment to the supply chain and local communities, and tackling the climate emergency.”
