I'm not sure why the UK is worries about the coronavirus at all. They only account for what, 0.5% of the global population? Every one there could die and it wouldn't make much of a difference. Only China should worry because so many of them could be infected.

Johnson revives onshore wind farms after 4-year ban

Boris Johnson has given the go-ahead to onshore wind farms four years after his predecessor, David Cameron, imposed a moratorium on subsidies for land-based wind turbines.

The prime minister’s move follows lower prices of electricity produced by wind farms in recent years, making the technology significantly cheaper than other forms of low-carbon electricity such as nuclear power.

I've long found it weird the left attacked Johnson on Environmental stuff. He was big on promoting cycling and launched the public cycles as mayor and has always been supportive of achieving zero net emissions. Plus his wife to be is a huge environmental nut who has worked for multiple environmental bodies. He's not going to do it in any business harming ways though.

It isn't. But it, and forestry and farming payments etc, do reveal the problems with land ownership in this country. Lots of land owned by not a lot of people who might have had it in the family for generations. And if you go back far enough how they originally got this land starts to get pretty murky.

Seriously? It's the cheapest form of energy Britain currently has access to. Unless the Government, and engineering consultancies, and the utility companies, and other governments are in a conspiracy. But you're obviously taking the mickey.

Yes seriously it requires feed in tariffs guaranteed for a huge return to the land owners. It’s much more likely to just be bad policy than any sort of conspiracy.

No.

No, ? It really does fill the coffers. Guaranteed 8-12% returns with government guarantees.... the previous incarnation also had EIS.

Are you familiar with the levelized cost of energy? It's measure of a power source that allows comparison of different methods of electricity generation taking in to account all of the factors, including tariffs. This has been calculated, independently of governments and vested interests. Over the decades, this calculation has been delegated to in the UK to an engineering firm called Mott MacDonald. Here's their 2016 numbers:

I've posted these before. I guess I'll still be posting them in a few years, when the next Mott MacDonald report comes out.

No one has ever accused that firm of bias. If you're really interested, read the report. It includes capital costs, economic life, subsidies and fuel. Every detail you could want to make an investment decision.

I’m also familiar with a company that built investment products off the back of the last incarnation of onshore wind and it sold 8% guaranteed as an EIS after build and the landowner taking a similar cut ..... the feed in was outrageous,and guaranteed for far longer than your examples.

You can't price an asset by the actions of fraudsters. You have to at least read the fundamentals.

I get you can do it cheaper, it’s just that everytime we get these initiatives they start them with stupidly high guarantees, UK problem not renewables per se, though we are now a world leader in car in reductions..... (with some richer rich people).
