What's Big In Newcastle?
Newcastle is a big centre for Renewable Energies in the UK. In the first quarter of 2020, renewable energy has managed to generate a record 47% of electricity in the UK. The increase from previous years was the result in the growth of the solar and wind farms throughout the country, particularly in the north. A single wind turbine can generate electricity of up to 1,400 homes. However, it does take over 500 people to make and maintain a wind turbine, meaning there is a shortage of Wind Turbine Service Engineers.
