Wales believes in wind power. This is evident in both government decisions and public support for new parks. For example, Welsh ministers recently approved the Upper Ogmore wind farm and energy storage project in Bridgend.

Welsh ministers approve new project

Renewable energy developer RES has received approval for the Upper Ogmore wind farm and energy storage project. The 25 MW project will produce low-cost renewable electricity.

Chris Jackson, project manager, is pleased with its impact:

“This is a great result for renewable energy in Wales and our efforts to tackle climate change as a country. The clean, green electricity generated will make a significant contribution to our goal of generating 70% of electricity from renewable sources by 2030.”

RES has been active in Wales since the early 1990s. It has developed five onshore wind farms in the country.

Wales, a wind power paradise?

Wales is the first country in the world to incorporate a legal requirement for sustainable development into its constitution and is a model for other countries. To achieve these results, the country can count on a public opinion largely favorable to its cause.

In fact, according to a poll, 71% of people are in favor of new onshore wind turbines in Wales. Another poll, commissioned by RenewableUK, showed that the public across the UK overwhelmingly supports wind power.
