UK wind farm celebrates 30th anniversary

One of the UK’s first ever wind farm is celebrating its 30th birthday as the COP26 climate conference opened in Glasgow. 

To mark the occasion, renewable energy company Good Energy commissioned renowned artist Luke Jerram to create an experimental light projection. 

The piece, which features moving images depicting nature, messages to world leaders and audio of children’s voices, was projected onto a wind turbine at Delabole, the birthplace of UK renewables.

Over 150 residents of the village came to see the artwork in and celebrate the anniversary of the wind farm which was originally built by the Edwards family 30 years ago. 

Good Energy, which owns and operates the wind farm, commissioned the project to inspire world leaders on the eve of the hugely important climate conference.
