UK Prime Minister: wind power to every home by 2030
Boris Johnson has reportedly announced a new plan of making the UK the world green power leader upgrading the UK power infrastructure with the growth of wind energy. This also features creating new employment opportunities and reducing carbon emissions.
£160 million will be allocated for the new measures and the upgrade across the most important areas, like Teesside and Humber in Northern England, Scotland and Wales in order to increase offshore wind capacity.
This a very important step in green industrial revolution of our century.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson said:
Our seas hold immense potential to power our homes and communities with low-cost green energy and we are already leading the way in harnessing its strengths.
Now, as we build back better we must build back greener. So we are committing to new ambitious targets and investment into wind power to accelerate our progress towards net zero emissions by 2050.
This sets us on our path towards a green industrial revolution, which will provide tens of thousands of highly-skilled jobs.
Business and Energy Secretary Alok Sharma said:
The offshore wind sector is a major British success story, providing cheap, green electricity while supporting thousands of good-quality jobs.
Powering every home in the country through offshore wind is hugely ambitious, but it’s exactly this kind of ambition which will mean we can build back greener and reach net zero emissions by 2050.
