The UK could become a leader in renewable cheap energy production if the right government assistance is given, it has been argued.
According to the Renewable Energy Centre, the government needs to support the green energy sector by improving skills so the UK can become a leading supplier of small wind power.
A spokesperson for the organisation said wind power is an integral part of the UKs renewable cheap energy strategy so this source of power must be developed.
"It is therefore critical that projects are given approval if we are to meet our 2020 targets," she said.
"Whether onshore or offshore, wind energy is vital for energy security, carbon emissions, EU targets and renewable energy generation."
The spokesperson predicted that with the launch of the governments Feed In Tariffs scheme, the installation of small wind turbines could increase.
According to RenewableUK, the UK market size of small wind systems is £17.12 million, which represents a 24.5 per cent increase on 2008.
