Cornwall will soon see more renewable energy injected into the grid with the development of a 'smart-grid' wind turbine, which it suggests could accelerate the region's journey to carbon-neutrality.
The project, which is claimed to be 'the first of its kind in the UK', will make small adjustments to its output to support grid stability and make peaks in demand smoother.
The wind turbine, which is funded by the Cornwall Council with a £3 million investment and a £1 million contribution from Centrica, is expected to reduce Cornwall’s greenhouse gas emissions by more than 3,300 tonnes every year.
