Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Offshore is up and running, but very expensive, slow, and accompanied by higher risks. The real push is still a ways off.

What is far more important is that Vestas is absolutely correct in faulting the UK onshore situation. Far cheaper, far less risk, and in Europe's strongest wind resource by far.  In fact, offshore in UK is partly to fill the void left by the UK's insanity not to be focused onshore.

In the past months an umbrella group encompassing all the onshore opponents has been created and is exceptionally well-funded. I wish i had time to go into the details, perhaps tomorrow or...

The real culprits in this story are the entrenched energy interests controlling the fight against onshore development, and pulling government strings.
