Wales has announced plans to ensure its energy suppliers are all producing power from renewable sources within 20 years, according to the Guardian.
In a new report, the country intends to become one of only three countries in the world to set legally-binding targets to be satisfying its full national energy demands through renewable means within two decades and eliminate waste within 40 years.
Furthermore, recycling rates are intended to surpass 70 per cent within 15 years, while just five per cent of household waste will end up in landfill sites.
Jane Davidson, the Welsh environment minister, told the paper: "We intend to reduce by 80 to 90 per cent our use of carbon-based energy, resulting in a similar reduction in our greenhouse gas generation. We are committed to making annual three per cent cuts in greenhouse gas emissions from 2011."
The UK government recently announced plans to insulate every home in the UK to deliver more widespread energy efficiency, while it is also initiating nuclear redevelopment in order to safeguard Britain's energy future.
