manchester According to Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s wishes, Great Britain should rely entirely on electricity from renewable sources from 2035 onwards. Johnson said the switch should make the British less dependent on foreign electricity.
“We can have completely clean energy production by 2035,” Johnson told reporters at the Tories conference in Manchester on Monday. This would make Britain less dependent on foreign electricity, which, depending on fluctuating prices, is a burden on British consumers’ wallets. Relying on “make your own clean energy” will help keep prices down.
As of now, the country has about ten gigawatts of offshore wind farms capacity, which is to be quadrupled by 2030. If this goal is achieved, it is calculated that all British households can be supplied with electricity.
However, there are concerns that further expansion may become less attractive if wind power prices continue to fall, as providers will be able to make less money with it. The British want to close the last coal-fired power plants by 2024, but they still rely on nuclear power.
The British government is expected to make more specific announcements ahead of COP26, the United Nations World Climate Conference in Glasgow, at which Great Britain seeks to present itself as a climate protection pioneer. So far, the country has set a target of reducing its emissions by 68 percent by 2030 compared to 1990 levels. However, concrete measures taken so far are not enough for this.
