Wednesday 25th February 7.30pm
The Green House Hotel, 4 Grove Road, Bournemouth BH1 3AX
With Navitus Bay Communications Manager Sean Parsons
With ever-increasing global energy consumption, dire warnings of potentially catastrophic climate change, and the UK becoming increasingly reliant on imported energy sources, wind farms offer a potential solution to our energy problems.
Sean Parsons from Navitus Bay Development Ltd will claim that the proposed wind farm situated approximately 10km south of Dorset and the Isle of Wight will help the UK to meet its climate change targets and contribute to security of energy supply, but the controversial project is being vigorously opposed by local councils and the National Trust who fear it will damage our region’s tourism-based economy. Wind farms have also been criticised for their intermittent output and the need for conventional energy back up.
