UK green energy company Ecotricity’s wind output up 18% in 2011
UK green energy company Ecotricity announced yesterday that its wind output in 2011 was up 18% on the previous year. The company has 51 wind turbines spread over 16 wind farms from Scotland to Somerset, which produced nearly 123.8 GWh last year, up from 104.6 GWh, thanks to stronger winds.
In total, says Ecotricity, it produced enough energy to power over 37,500 homes.
Ecotricity plans to build 19 new turbines at five sites across the UK this year, increasing its capacity by 50%. The company is also seeking planning permissions for a further 78 turbines, which would provide enough capacity to power around 100,000 homes.

Climate Change

U.S. weighs retaliation over Europe carbon tax
The Obama administration is laying the groundwork for possible retaliation in response to a European law requiring airlines to pay for carbon emissions.
Discussions between key agencies have ramped up recently, although there is no consensus yet on what, if anything, the U.S. government should do unilaterally or in concert with other nations also upset with the law.
The EU law went into effect on January 1 and requires global airlines to pay for carbon emissions on flights to and from Europe.
Several experts said one option the United States could pursue would involve charging European airlines to maintain U.S. access to pressure EU policymakers. This strategy was used by the United States in a recently concluded dispute with Argentina over landing fees.
