Boris Johnson is set to announce all of Britain’s electricity will come from green sources by 2035, it emerged last night.
The Prime Minister will reportedly reveal the new policy this week as he seeks to reduce the country’s dependence on gas and other fossil fuels.
He will use his conference speech to commit the Conservatives to plans to invest significantly in renewable and nuclear energy, The Times reported.
Mr Johnson is expected to say that sourcing all electricity from renewables would be a clear step towards the Government’s ambition to hit net zero emissions by 2050.
