While the OFFICE of President remains in highest regard at NewEnergyNews, this administration's position on climate change makes it impossible to regard THIS president with respect. Below is the NewEnergyNews theme song until 2020.

The challenge now: To make every day Earth Day.

    A 7,200 MW OFFSHORE WIND PROJECT

    Iberdrola to carry out the Largest Renewable Energy Project in its History

    26 September 2012 (World of Wind Energy)

    “…[Spain’s] Iberdrola… with Swedish company Vattenfall…[have begun development] of the most important renewable energy project ever, the East Anglia offshore wind farm which will be built ¡n British waters…[They] have awarded a €23 million contract to Aberdeen based Woods Group for the fabrication, installation and operation of two weather monitoring stations on the coast of Norfolk and Suffolk…[To] be built by Steel Engineering…they are expected to be located in British waters next summer.

    “Both stations will measure the wind speed and direction, as well as temperature and air pressure for an area bigger than Norfolk, which will enable key technical and engineering decisions for the wind farm to be taken. Once they come into operation they will be among the most technically advanced weather facilities in the United Kingdom.”

    “With this award, total investment in the East Anglia offshore wind farm which is currently in its preliminary development phase, amounts so far to 62 million euros, which shows the sheer size of this project…[It] has the potential to deliver 7,200MW of installed capacity…enough clean green energy to power 5 million homes…[It] will be one of the world’s largest renewable energy projects.

    “…[O]ffshore wind energy is a key platform of IBERDROLA’s future growth plans…[It the technology] as a second renewable-energy revolution…[T]he Company’s Offshore Business Division, based in Scotland [with] offices in London, Berlin and Paris is developing its offshore wind project pipeline of over 11,000 MW across Northern Europe…”
