energy Licences for 1000s more offshore wind turbines

The UK Government has announced leases for 3 areas of the seabed off Britain to establish offshore wind farms. The areas concerned are off the North West, the Wash, and the Thames estuary. The projects are estimated to create up to 20,000 jobs, and deliver 5% of the UK energy needs.

The story has been very widely covered, and at least for the moment can be perused via a Google news search.
