– Wind Power: Wind turbines produce energy when the large blades that make up the turbine spin, this then powers a generator within the main pillar that produces electricity. With the UK being an island, we are lucky to have plenty of space to install offshore windfarms around our coastlines. With six of the 10 highest-capacity offshore wind projects in the world, the UK has become one of the top countries for wind power generation.
– Bioenergy: When organic material decomposes it produces methane, a powerful greenhouse gas that is around 28 times more powerful than carbon dioxide at warming the Earth. However, there are ways that we can capture this methane and use it to create power, preventing it from entering our atmosphere whilst also reducing our reliance on fossil fuels. Recycling food waste is a great example of this, whenever your food waste bins are emptied by the council, the contents is then taken to a facility where the methane is captured and used to produce electricity.
