The long-term decarbonisation target set by the EU, which requires the UK to reduce CO2 emissions by 80% before 2050, as well as source 15% of its energy from renewable sources by 2020, is a notable driver of green energy projects such as these, but one which is firmly putting the UK on the map for renewable energy developments.
Long may it continue.
