Department for Energy and Climate Change confirms support for onshore wind

On 22 January 2013, the Department for Energy and Climate Change (DECC) issued a paper confirming its support for the expansion of onshore wind. It said "Onshore wind is a home-grown energy source that will protect UK consumers from energy price shocks and help meet renewable energy targets."

The paper lays out the future for onshore wind, explains the costs and benefits of onshore wind and the planning system, details the issues regarding aviation and radar, and details the support and resources for local projects.
