London Array offshore wind farm plays an important part in the provision of renewable power, and one of the many ways that power is used is to be showcased in a BBC documentary.
Popular documentary series Inside the Factory is to tell the story of the red double-decker bus and everything that enables it to carry millions of passengers a day – which includes renewable energy provided by organisations such as London Array.
As part of the documentary, presenter Cherry Healey takes a boat trip to the offshore wind farm to learn how the turbines transform wind into electricity that can power more than half a million homes, and any number of other things, such as electric cars and buses.
Bob Smith, General Manager at London Array, said: “By demonstrating the part a wind farm can play in powering an electric bus, this documentary should help people to understand how renewable energy – which can be a distant idea when it relates to something 20km offshore – fits into everyday life.
“It was a pleasure for us to meet the Inside the Factory team and we hope people enjoy watching the documentary as much as we enjoyed helping to make it.”
Inside the Factory: Buses will be first broadcast on BBC2 at 9pm on Monday, 8 August. It will also be available to watch on iPlayer: https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m001b0qc
