World's biggest offshore wind farm approved

The world's biggest offshore wind scheme has been given the go-ahead off the coast of Yorkshire, in a move the government said was likely to create hundreds of jobs. The Dogger Bank Creyke Beck project is expected to be one of Britain's biggest power stations, second only to Drax in North Yorkshire and capable of supplying about 2.5% of the country's electricity. The developers have yet to take a final investment decision and the project will almost certainly have to obtain backing under the government's renewable energy subsidy system. But the planning consent for such a large development was welcomed by the industry. The energy department said the project was expected to support up to 900 jobs, while the consortium behind the scheme claimed it could create up to 4,750 direct and indirect full-time positions.
