The UK’s largest wind farm developer has ruled out building new onshore wind farms in England and Wales in a blow to the Government’s net zero plans.
Alistair Phillips-Davies, chief executive of SSE, said his company was “unlikely to build a single wind farm” in England or Wales despite the Government’s recent relaxation of planning rules.
Mr Phillips-Davies said there was too little space, too many protests and not enough wind. He added that England and Wales were “particularly awkward places to try to do business.”
He also warned that future onshore projects in Scotland were likely to be limited.
