Sheringham Shoal Offshore Wind Farm - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Sheringham Shoal Offshore Wind Farm is an offshore wind farm in the United Kingdom by Scira, owned by Statoil and Statkraft with 50% each. Scira has leased the area from The Crown Estate for 40 years.[1][2][3] The first turbine was connected to the grid in August 2011.[4] The nearest turbine is a minimum distance of approximately 9 nautical miles (17 kilometres) to the shore. The turbines are supported by foundations secured to the sea bed. The wind farm will have a total area of approximately 14 sq mi (36 km2).[1][2][5]

The wind farm consists of 88 Siemens 3.6 MW wind turbines (model SWT-3.6-107 costing €450m ($597m)),[6][7] giving a total combined nameplate capacity of 317 MW.[3] The estimated output is about 1.1 TW·h per year,[3][8] providing enough power for approximately 220,000 average UK homes, more than twice the equivalent electricity required to supply the whole of the North Norfolk coast. The wind farm will avoid about 500,000 tonnes per year of carbon dioxide emissions compared to electricity generation from fossil fuels.[3]

The United Kingdom has the largest shallow-water offshore wind resource in the world, and it has been estimated that the UK could provide over 33% of the total European potential for offshore wind energy.[citation needed] This is enough to power the country nearly three times over. [1] Britain’s relatively shallow waters and strong winds extend far into the North Sea. The development of the Sheringham Shoal Offshore Wind Farm is another step towards tapping this inexhaustible and natural resource.

Nuclear power by country - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Currently, 68 reactors are under construction in 15 countries.

Nuclear power stations operate in thirty countries. In 2010, before the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster, it was reported that an average of about 10 nuclear reactors were expected to become operational per year, although according to the World Nuclear Association, of the 17 civilian reactors planned to become operational between 2007 and 2009, only five actually came on stream.[3] As of June 2011, Germany and Switzerland are phasing-out nuclear power.[4][5]

As of June 2011, countries such as Australia, Austria, Denmark, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Malaysia, Malta, New Zealand, Norway and Portugal remain opposed to nuclear power.[4][6]
