Britain leads as EU offshore wind power has record year, study says

Britain emerged as world leader in generating electricity from offshore wind
turbines last year as the European Union showed a record jump in output, a
study said Thursday. The EU has pledged to reduce its greenhouse-gas emissions by at least 20 per
cent before 2020 and sees offshore wind power as one of the main ways of
doing so. But the technology is still in its infancy and is far from
challenging traditional forms of generation.
