On April 18, the United Kingdom conservation group National Trust outlined its goal to generate half of its power from renewable energy sources and to reduce energy consumption by 20 percent by 2020. The group owns nearly 62,000 acres of land across the UK. The overall plan includes 27 percent hydropower, 21 percent biomass, 1 percent heat pumps, and .5 percent solar; Nation Trust Chairman Simon Jenkins has frequently expressed opposition to wind power on national trust sites because they are deemed too sensitive. The Trust anticipates a return of capital of 10 percent as a result of this switch.
