To meet the worldwide requirements of carbon emission reduction, the European Council has set the UK a 15% energy target to come from renewable energy by 2020. The biggest renewable energy sources in the UK are bioenergy, wind, solar and hydro. The UK is located in prime geography, considered to be the best in Europe, for harvesting and over the last three decades, the number of wind farms has increased greatly. However, the interaction of wind speed and structural strength have limited the height of platform-based wind turbines to a maximum height of around 100 m.
