Media reported that the UK is no stranger to addressing issues such as climate change and clean energy. For example, the British government has considered offering cash payments to citizens to replace internal combustion engine cars, and in 2018 it proposed legislation requiring new homes to have electric car chargers built into them. However, the country has not stopped there. British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has reportedly said the government will invest about 160 million pounds in offshore wind technology as part of a broader push to speed up the transition to clean energy.
More specifically, the money will be used to build factories capable of producing these generating wind turbines and ports capable of deploying them.
The UK will try to make clean electricity available to every household in England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales by 2030. All in all, the UK aims to produce about 40GW of wind energy to accomplish this feat.
