Vestas ain’t doing so bad, but the government could do with some carbon credits

Well, well, well:

‘Government may have to buy carbon credits from private sector’ (Politics.co.uk)
“The proportion of renewable energy used by government departments has actually dropped in the last year, according to the environmental audit committee (EAC).
“The news could not have come at a worse time for ministers, who are currently attempting to position themselves as leaders on the world stage prior to the Copenhagen summit while facing accusations of failing to prevent the closure of the Vestas windfarm at home.”

Meanwhile, over the past few days, we’ve heard from Windtech International the two following stories:

“Vestas has received an order for an offshore wind power plant with a total capacity of 165MW. The wind power plant, Bligh Bank Offshore Wind Farm, consists of 55 units of the V90-3.0MW wind turbine and will be located 46 kilometres off the coast of Zeebrugge, situated in the zone dedicated by the Belgian Government for the construction of wind farms.”
“Vestas has received an order for 41 units of the V90-2.0MW wind turbine for the Orites project in Cyprus. The order comprises supply and commissioning of the wind turbines, as well as a five-year service and maintenance agreement.”

  1. ie, the govts saying they’re still planning to f*ck the developing world over some more?

  2. This wind farm has destroyed the Panorama from Aphrodite Hills resort- on a windy day you can even hear the wind turbines, and they flash up at night like a runway – all 40 plus of the wind turbines that is.
