More renewables now

BREAKING: Our research shows England has the potential to generate 13x more renewable energy than we currently do from onshore wind and solar.

With that added capacity, the UK would have the potential to meet its own energy needs and become a green energy superpower, exporting clean, cheap electricity to other countries.

But frustratingly, new onshore wind farms are restricted in England. Learn more about where we could build more renewable energy potential and how to take action.
