The article considers the potential of Great Britain as the world leader in renewable energy. If the country had been more aggressive in developing the renewable energy, it would be exporting green electricity and wind turbines to Europe and beyond. Forty-percent of the continent's wind blows across the shores of Great Britain, which is enough to meet its energy needs and more. The British government recognized that microgeneration could play an important role in a clean energy future and transforming homes into small power stations.
