Question number  Answer  Keywords  Location of keywords
1 v In terms of micro-renewable energy sources suitable for private use, a 15-kilowatt (kW) turbine is at the biggest end of the spectrum. Paragraph A;

Line 1 

2 ii I don’t know of any credible studies of the greenhouse gas emissions involved in producing and installing turbines, so my estimates here are going to be even more broad than usual. However, it is worth trying. Paragraph B;

Lines 1 – 2

3 iv The carbon savings from wind-powered electricity generation depend on the carbon intensity of the electricity that you’re replacing. Paragraph C;

Line 1 

4 ix The UK government has recently introduced a subsidy for renewable energy that pays individual producers 24p per energy unit Paragraph D;

Line 1 

5 i So, at face value, the turbine looks like a great idea environmentally, and a fairly good long-term investment economically for the person installing it. Paragraph E;

Line 1

Paragraph G;

Line 3

8 B It’s important to remember that all these sums rely on a wind turbine having a favourable location) Paragraph D;

Last line

9 E the UK government has recently introduced a subsidy for renewable energy that pays individual producers 24p per energy unit on top of all the money they save on their own fuel bill, and on selling surplus electricity back to the grid at approximately 5p per unit. Paragraph D;

Line 1

10 offshore wind farms My calculations tell me that had the government invested its money in offshore wind farms, instead of subsidising smaller domestic turbines, they would have broken even after eight years. Paragraph E;

Line 6

11 developing technology In addition, such investment helps to promote and sustain developing technology. Paragraph F;

Last line

12 negative Input- output modelling has told us that it is actually quite difficult to spend money without having a negative carbon impact. Paragraph G;

Line 2

13 cars if the subsidy encourages people to spend their money on a carbon-reducing technology such as a wind turbine, rather than on carbon-producing goods like cars, and services such as overseas holidays Paragraph G;
