ABSTRACT
The article presents the author's views on providing subsidies to wind power generation in Great Britain. The author says that no form of energy is now cheap. According to the author, currently wind energy is more expensive in comparison to other forms, however it will be more cost competitive in near future and will offer energy security. However, it is said that reduction in carbon dioxide can be achieved at much less cost by cleaning coal using hydrogen fluoride.
