Every home in the UK could get their electricity from wind-power within this decade

In a speech Tuesday (Oct 6th), Prime Minister Boris Johnson pledged that the United Kingdom would generate enough electricity from offshore wind to power every UK home within a decade.

The UK government also unveiled a new target for floating offshore wind to deliver 1 Gigawatt of energy by 2030. That’s more than 15 times as much power as floating offshore wind currently generates worldwide, it said. The government promised ¬£160 million ($207 million) to upgrade ports and infrastructure…

Britain must “build back greener” from the coronavirus pandemic in order to accelerate progress towards a legally binding target to reach net zero emissions by 2050, Johnson said…

While I’m not convinced Boris Johnson and his Tories are best capable of leading this task, he’s got the science and technology right for a change. Unlike his peers here in the GOUSA. At least the Left and Right in Great Britain appear capable of uniting on a plan to make the switch to renewables for generating electricity…and leave “stupid and spooky” behind.
