Thinking of wind energy often conjures up images of swathes of turbines on wind farms.

More frequently wind power is playing its part in the distributed energy picture. Smaller scale wind turbines, designed to fit in to farm, business and community settings, are increasingly being installed.

Europe is the global leader in operational capacity for wind energy and 40% of Europe’s wind energy blows across the UK.

Improvements in wind energy technology mean that the UK is well-placed as the increase in distributed wind generation is set to continue.
