Government: 'Offshore wind energy will power nearly half of UK electricity by 2030'

Mar 7, 2019 ·


‘Clean and green’ offshore wind is set to power more than 30 per cent of British electricity by 2030.

Announced today (March 7) by energy and clean growth minister Claire Perry, it ties in with the launch of the new joint government-industry Offshore Wind Sector Deal.

This deal will mean - for the first time in UK history - there will be more electricity from renewables than fossil fuels, with 70 per cent of British electricity predicted to be from low carbon sources by 2030, and over £40bn of UK infrastructure investment.

This is said to be the 10th Sector Deal from the modern Industrial Strategy signed by business secretary, Greg Clark.

It is backed by UK renewables companies, marking a change in the offshore wind industry. It could supposedly bring in around 27,000 jobs by 2030.
