Britain, Ireland, Channel Islands and Isle of Man sign deal

Ministers from Britain, Ireland, the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man signed a deal to work together to exploit the region’s wind and marine energy resources. The “All Islands Approach” aims to help and encourage developers to make the most of the commercial opportunities for generation and transmission of local renewable energy.

The co-operation should also increase the integration of the different regional markets and help improve security of power supply. “There is a massive potential source of clean, green, secure energy that remains untapped in the Irish Sea and onshore in Ireland, as well as around the Channel Islands,” says UK Minister of State for Energy Charles Hendry.
