Benefiting the environment with low carbon, renewable energy
London Array will play a key role in helping the UK meet the Government’s environmental and renewable energy targets. These include:
- To reduce CO2 emissions by 34% by 2020
- To generate 15% of all energy from renewable sources by 2015.
When complete, London Array Phase One, will reduce carbon emissions by 925,000 tonnes each year, helping to tackle the effects of climate change and global warming.
London Array will generate enough electricity for nearly half a million homes– equivalent nearly two thirds of the homes in Kent.
Our commitment to protecting the environment
Although London Array will provide significant, long term environmental benefits by reducing carbon emissions, we have to make sure that the construction and operation of the wind farm don’t have a negative impact on the local area.
