The article reports that the British government will expand offshore windfarm operations. Energy Secretary John Hutton said that the expansion would be a major step toward meeting European Commission targets to generate 20 percent of Europe's energy from renewable sources. The government will announce the competitive process and commercial terms for the third round of offshore wind licensing. An Ernst & Young executive estimates that £50 billion would be needed for the third round.
