As reported by the BBC, UK and Irish ministers will today sign an agreement that will mean the some of the world’s largest wind turbines built across the Irish midlands.
According to this proposed agreement hundreds of wind turbines will be erected across the boggy midlands of Ireland. The power generated would be transferred to the UK via undersea cables that would join the grid at two points in Wales. These turbines will be 180 meters tall and they will generate energy for millions of UK homes from 2017.
The developers of the project say that thousands of renewable energy jobs and environmental jobs will be created in Ireland and the economy as a whole will benefit.

The Financial Times has reported that Teesside is becoming a hotbed for renewable energy investment, with around thirty low carbon investments.
These investments are set to be added to, with various proposals set to be implemented. They range from an anaerobic energy research plant to a processing plant for over 400,000 tonnes of household waste to a £200 million advanced gasification plant for the new energy and technology plant near Billingham. These will all create jobs and investment.
Another proposed scheme is the Tenergis project, which will process crude oil and produce diesel, kerosene and hydrogen. The North East of England Process Industry Cluster (NEPIC) estimates over 50 million metric tonnes of waste is produced annually, with over three quarters being recyclable. NEPIC believes the government should review its policies on industry and energy to protect the UK’s industrial base from carbon taxation. The hesitancy has left projects such as a £500 million biomass plant on hold in the area.
