A Europe-wide cheap energy project has been backed by the prime minister.
David Cameron yesterday (January 20th) announced that the UK would support the North Seas Offshore Grid initiative, which would work on the concept of a cheap electricity supergrid designed to bring green energy from one country to another.
Chris Huhne, the energy secretary, commented: "Europe's future lies in green energy and Britain wants to work with other countries to make the most of the clean energy potential in and around the North Sea.
"Today we're stepping up our efforts with our European partners to develop a North Sea electricity supergrid that will help secure our energy supplies in a low carbon way."
This could drive Europe's commitment to meeting ambitious green energy targets and also improve the EU's energy security by working towards ways of storing power produced by wind farms.
Meanwhile, figures produced by the European Wind Energy Association have confirmed that the UK is a world leader in the wind power sector.
