Originally founded in 1978 to promote wind power in the United Kingdom, in 2004 the British Wind Energy Association expanded its mission to champion wave and tidal energy and use the Association's experience to guide these technologies along the same path to commercialisation.
Wind energy has now started a major expansion in the UK and will be the single greatest contributor to the UK Government targets for 10% of electricity supplies to be met by renewables by 2010. Onshore wind alone could meet over half of this target, one of the conclusions of BWEA’s analysis of the sector conducted as part of the Government Energy Review.
Wind has been the world's fastest growing renewable energy source for the last seven years, and this trend is expected to continue with falling costs of wind energy and government policies aimed at reducing carbon emissions to prevent global warming.
