Isle of Man could provide UK with renewable energy

Sat, 11 Feb 2012

The UK's energy secretary has been hearing about the potential to export renewable energy to Britain from the Isle of Man.

MHK Laurence Skelly, who has political responsibility for the Island's energy policy and clean technology, met with Ed Davey at the opening of the world's largest wind farm this week.

Within the Island's twelve mile territorial waters, the Government says there's huge potential to generate power from wind, wave and tidal.

Supplying energy to the UK would give the economy a boost through investment, job creation and income.

Mr Skelly says he hopes Mr Davey will be able to visit the Island in the near future.
