Reports in the Sunday papers claim that Boris Johnston has plans to build a huge wind farm in the Irish Sea

According to the reports he told industry leaders he has “a dream” that a giant floating wind farm could provide “gigawatts of energy and do it within a year”, according to a government source.

He was addressing wind energy firms at a round table discussion in Downing Street as the Government finalised its energy security strategy.

As the country looks to a radical expansion of homegrown energy following Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine, the Business Secretary has said that Britain could build up to seven new nuclear power stations by 2050

Ministers have agreed to set up a development vehicle, Great British Nuclear, to identify sites, cut through red tape to speed up the planning process and bring together private firms to run each site reports the Telegraph
