Large wind farms may lose out on energy subsidy

Large wind farms may be less likely to win a subsidy under the next tranche of the non-fossil fuel obligation (NFFO), as the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) and the Scottish Office move to allay public concern over visual and noise impacts. But roughly 20 of the 230 wind farm proposals in England and Wales are expected to win NFFO support - no different from the level always predicted by the industry. Meanwhile, novel biomass plants are set to receive a boost from the subsidy for the first time.
