star this property answer text <p>The offshore wind sector is a success story for the UK. From 2010 the offshore wind’s share of annual UK generation increased over 5% to 6.2% in 2017, with costs falling faster than anyone could have envisaged 10 years ago. The Offshore Wind Sector deal could deliver up to 30GW by 2030 and the Government has committed to work across Government, including aviation, to ensure this is achieved in a sustainable way taking account of users of the sea, aviation and MOD.</p><p> </p><p>Although wind turbines can impact the effectiveness of radar systems, it’s essential that aviation continues to benefit from a high standard of safety, and therefore ongoing cooperation between Government and the windfarm industry will continue to play a key role in ensuring that this remains the case.</p><p> </p><p>The Government’s current policy is that the mitigation costs of offshore wind’s impacts on radar should be recovered from those windfarm developers who stand to benefit commercially. Therefore, the wind sector deal is currently dealt with separately from the upcoming aviation strategy.</p><p> </p><p>An Aviation Management Board, in which the Government and relevant bodies such as NATS and the CAA participate, has been established for the Government to work jointly with both the windfarm industry and the aviation sector to find a solution which meets the needs of both industries and ensures a safe airspace. This will ensure cross-Government coordination on radar and aviation policy matters.</p><p> </p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>Our aviation forecasts do not make any assumptions about the underlying general energy mix. The Government, however, does undertake cross sectoral energy analysis of that nature. The locations of wind farms are considered through the planning process.</p><p> </p><p>The Offshore Wind Sector Deal, published by Government in March this year, envisages up to 30GW of offshore wind deployment by 2030. An Aviation Management Board, in which the Department and relevant bodies such as NATS and CAA participate, has been established for the Government to work jointly with both the windfarm industry and aviation sector to find a solution which meets the needs of both industries and secures a safe airspace. This will ensure cross-Government coordination on radar and aviation policy matters. The Department will take account of the outputs of this work in developing aviation policy.</p><p> </p><p><strong> </strong></p> more like this

The consultation period on the green paper closed on 20 June. We will use the responses and feedback gathered during consultation to finalise the Government’s future vision for aviation, with the final white paper due to be published at the end of this year.</p> more like this

That’s why we are modernising the UK rail fleet to introduce more electric, bi-mode (electric and diesel hybrid) and alternative-fuel trains to the network. The new bi-mode intercity trains for the Midland Main Line will have less environmental impact than the current trains, some of which are over 30 years old. Our ambition is that these will be the cleanest ever bi-mode trains.</p><p> </p><p>Abellio, who have recently been awarded the new East Midlands Railway franchise will be at the forefront of delivering a cleaner, greener rail network. They are seeking innovative ways to keep emissions to a minimum when running under diesel power, and will trial hydrogen fuel cell trains on the Midland Main Line and run zero-carbon pilots at six stations along the route.</p>
