1 The National Plan

2 The National Plan NREAP

3 The Planned progress of Renewable Energy (RE) to 2020 Detailed figures are shown in Appendix 1

4 The Planned progress of RE related to Consumption This is visibly a reasonable relationship Consumption from National Grid (Appendix 3)

5 What is actually happening DECC RESTATS & REPD provide Progress reports and data Source: https://restats.decc.gov.uk/app/pub/repd/index/tab/progress/https://restats.decc.gov.uk/app/pub/repd/index/tab/progress/ This is the DECC chart of actual progress in Renewable Energy The actual rate is MUCH greater than the planned rate – see App. 2.1 Note: 2013 is half year only.

6 What is actually happening Source: https://restats.decc.gov.uk/app/reporting/decc/datasheethttps://restats.decc.gov.uk/app/reporting/decc/datasheet Exceeds maximum consumption without any other generation

7 This is just Renewables Exceeds maximum consumption without any other generation

8 This is just Renewables Exceeds maximum consumption without any other generation When the wind blows, actual Supply exceeds our Consumption. Do we switch off Nuclear so we can use more Wind? Do we switch off other Renewable Energy so we can use more wind?

9 Progress in Northumberland Source: https://restats.decc.gov.uk/cms/planning-databasehttps://restats.decc.gov.uk/cms/planning-database Renewable Energy Already Approved in Northumberland Total over 757MW

16 How We Compare Our countryside is one of the most precious things we have in Britain David Cameron 12/08/13 Daily Telegraph Article We would agree. Dunstanburgh Castle as it used to be Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty

17 How We Compare I would never sanction something that might ruin our landscapes and scenery. David Cameron 12/08/13 Daily Telegraph Article Then who did? Or is this not your landscape? Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty Dunstanburgh Castle as it now is.

18 How We Compare The Councils grounds and case for refusal: Dominance in the wider landscape affecting the Coast AONB. Harm to the Landscape Character Area. Would result in significant harm to some of the most important and cherished landscape in the North of England. Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty Dunstanburgh Castle as it now is.

19 Why do we need more Wind farms? Is More Wind needed to keep the lights on? Is More needed to lower Carbon Emission and save the world?

20 Is it to keep the lights on? National Grid gave us the answer in their Nov. 2012 Ten Year Statement. http://www.nationalgrid.com/uk/Electricity/ten-year-statement/current-elec-tys/

21 Is it to keep the lights on? NO! The plant margin is defined as the amount of generation capacity available over and above the level of peak demand. National Grid Ten Year Statement Nov. 2012 p28 This National Grid chart shows excess capacity above peak requirements. The Blue section denotes ALL planned wind generation at different wind strengths through to year 2032

22 Is it to keep the lights on? NO! The plant margin is defined as the amount of generation capacity available over and above the level of peak demand. National Grid Ten Year Statement Nov. 2012 p28 National Grid show that even when we are at our greatest consumption (the peak demand) all the predicted wind generation is within the Margin. When the wind is blowing we will have 70% EXCESS capacity. None of it is needed to meet even maximum consumption. Wind is NEVER needed to keep the lights on.

23 Is it to save Carbon Emission? We have already seen the answer:

24 Is it to save Carbon Emission? NO! How can extra wind farms save emissions if we already have to switch off other renewables in order to use wind? Exceeds maximum consumption without any other generation

25 Is it worth ruining Landscape, Scenery and the Countryside? NO! Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty

Total planned for 2013 is 14660MW – we already have 18440MW plus over 1200MW recently announced but not included in the above June report.

They allow us to accurately project future operational quantities based upon the detailed planned figures and current performance. This is shown in slides 6-8, 21

42 The Societys evidence to the Middlemoor Public Inquiry Some 9km to the east is the coastal area, designated an AONB in 1958. It has some of the most dramatic coastal scenery in the country, as well as a remarkable richness and variety of cultural sites and natural habitat. Much of the enjoyment derives from the absence of mechanical or industrial intrusions both in the AONB and in its visual hinterland. The Wind Farm would be visible from Holy Island to Dunstanburgh, almost half of the AONB, dominating the landscape. Almost the full height of the turbines would be visible from the coast, and their height would be almost as great as the altitude of the site. Although the site is some 20km from the Cheviots, the Wind Farm would be noticeable to walkers on the High Cheviots. The flashing movement of the turbine blades would be an unwelcome intrusion. Motorists on the A1 would be faced with the dominating presence of a wind farm landscape. Many would be tourists or visitors in search of wild, romantic landscapes and distant views, whose experience would be jarred and interrupted by the presence of the turbines. The landscape of Northumberland remains, to a remarkable extent, an unspoilt prospect of grand landscapes, long views and gradual change over centuries. To destroy this part of Northumberlands landscape is to impoverish the whole. The Inspectors conclusion: I do not think that the Wind Farm would have a harmful effect on landscape character. the Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) would not be materially affected. The main character focus of the AONB is the coast itself and, although the development would be seen in distant views from the AONB, the effect would not be materially harmful. Overall, I find the wind farm would not conflict materially with the qualities of the landscape which contribute to the settings of the coastal historic features. This would be so both in general and in particular instances such as when glimpsed in a critical view at the entrance to Dunstanburgh Castle. Rather than a discordant focus of attention, the wind farm would appear as a distant area of interest, amongst others, in the landscape. The renewable energy policy background to the proposal is so strong, and the potential benefits so great, that the harm identified to visual aspects and settings should not prevent the proposal from proceeding.
