Brexit... Hinkley Point... seems that it's hard time for renewable in the UK as shown in the new EY's renewables attractiveness index: All time low' for UK renewables


But is it only a UK issue? More than half of the offshore wind capacity consented in Europe at the end of 2015 (15GW approx) was supposed to be built on the British shores. If this does not happen it is the entire worldwide leadership of the European offshore wind industry that is at stake; just when US competitor GE is building muscle.
