The cost of implementing cheap energy wind projects is consistently coming down, an MP has said.
Chris Huhne, secretary of state at the Department of Energy and Climate Change, explained that the cost of wind energy is coming down as onshore wind is becoming increasingly competitive with other more conventional sources of energy.
He maintained that over time, the same will happen with offshore wind, cementing Britain's place as a leader in offshore wind.
"This is a very windy country so we have a fantastic amount of resource for wind energy and we could potentially produce enough energy to fuel 33 million homes," Mr Huhne said.
He added that wind power currency provides cheap energy to 24 million homes, so there is a real prospect of Britain becoming a net energy exporter as the peak of North Sea oil and gas levels are reached.
Mr Huhne visited Leicester Square on June 14th 2010 to open Wind Week 2010, an annual UK-wide celebration of wind energy organised by RenewableUK in partnership with the Scottish Renewables Festival.
