Wind farms will power every home in the UK by 2020, the Prime Minister Boris Johnson will pledge in his party conference speech on Tuesday.

Mr Johnson will provide a £160 million fund to upgrade ports and factories to facilitate the building of turbines which he claims will create 2,000 jobs and support a further 60,000.

It is a move, the Prime Minister will argue, that will enable the UK to become "the world leader in clean wind energy".

It is the first in a 10-point plan for a "green industrial revolution" designed to "accelerate our progress towards net zero emissions by 2050", with the rest of the plan revealed later in the year, Number 10 says.

Mr Johnson will repeat his pledge to make the UK the 'Saudi Arabia of wind'. In his speech, he will say: "Your kettle, your washing machine, your cooker, your heating, your plug-in electric vehicle - the whole lot of them will get their juice cleanly and without guilt from the breezes that blow around these islands.

"Far out in the deepest waters we will harvest the gusts, and by upgrading infrastructure in places like Teesside and Humber and Scotland and Wales, we will increase an offshore wind capacity that is already the biggest in the world."

Greenpeace UK executive director John Sauven said: "The prime minister's recognition that last year's Tory manifesto commitment on offshore wind can generate jobs whilst cutting energy bills and carbon is a great lightbulb moment.

"If carried through it would help cement the UK's global leadership in this key technology.

"But delivering 40 gigawatts of power on to the grid by 2030 requires action in this Parliament."
