ABERDEEN BAY WINDFARM OFFICIALLY OPENED- WWF Scotland comment

 

Welcoming the official opening of Aberdeen Bay Windfarm, which includes the most power turbines in the world, [1] Dr Sam Gardner, acting director at WWF Scotland said:

 

“It’s brilliant to see Aberdeen Bay windfarm officially opened.  Climate change is being played out before our eyes, with this summer being officially named the hottest in UK recorded history.  Offshore wind has a critical part to play in the fight against climate change by helping reduce emissions, keeping the lights on and creating thousands of jobs across the country.

 

“Scotland’s renewable resource has huge potential to drive a zero emissions economy, with careful planning and learning through developments such as this we can continue to take great strides to harness the power of offshore wind.”
