Ten Gigawatts of Wind
Jamais Cascio, 24 Feb 05

The Scotsman reports that the Irish firm Airtricity is set to put up 5,000 two-megawatt wind turbines in the North Sea, producing ten gigawatts of power. When completed (and, as it has not yet been approved, the completion date is not set), it will be the largest wind farm in the world, assuming no competing megafarms get built in the meantime. The 10GW wind farm would help Scotland meet its goal of generating 40% of its power from renewable sources by 2020.

It will be interesting to see if the bragging rights over "biggest wind farm" becomes a point of national pride and competition.
