PM plan to power every home with offshore wind: Set to power every home in the UK with offshore wind by 2030, will be pledged by The Prime Minister.

Today Boris Johnson will present his speech and will unveil the government’s initiative to ‘create hundreds of thousands, if not millions of jobs’ to the virtual Conservative Party conference.

“We believe that in ten years’ time offshore wind will be powering every home in the country, with our target rising from 30GW to 40GW. Your kettle, your washing machine, your cooker, your heating, your plug-in electric vehicle, the whole lot of them will get their juice cleanly and without guilt from the breezes that blow around these islands.” says Boris Johnson.

The manufacture of next-generation wind turbines, including the upgrade of ports and infrastructure, will be pledged an investment of £160 million by the Prime Minister in his speech.

The planned investment could support up to 60,000 jobs by 2030 in ports, factories and supply chains and 2,000 construction jobs initially.

Mr Johnson will be promising the nation making ‘the world leader’ in low-cost clean power generation, .

“We will not only build fixed arrays in the sea, we will build windmills that float on the sea, enough to deliver 1GW of energy by 2030, 15 times as much as the rest of the world put together.

“Far out in the deepest waters we will harvest the gusts and by upgrading infrastructure in places like Teeside and Humber and Scotland and Wales we will increase an offshore wind capacity that is already the biggest in the world.

“As Saudi Arabia is to oil, the UK is to wind, a place of almost limitless resource, but in the case of wind without the carbon emissions and without the damage to the environment.”:as he is expected to add.
