Offshore wind on target to become lowest-cost, large scale clean energy source

Offshore wind on target to become lowest-cost, large scale clean energy source UK offshore wind hits cost reduction target four years ahead of schedule A report published today reveals that the cost of energy from offshore wind has fallen by 32% since 2012 and is now below the joint UK Government and industry target of £100 per megawatt hour (MWh) four years ahead of schedule. It also shows high industry confidence of continued rapid cost reduction to below levels set by any other large-scale, low-carbon energy source. The target, set in 2012, was expected to be met by 2020, but wind farms given final investment decision in 2015/16 are already
