Wales could meet 100% of its energy needs from renewable sources by 2035, under an "ambitious" new plan set out by policy experts
It urges Welsh Government to allocate more of its budget to green energy. The Institute of Welsh Affairs (IWA) predicts 20,150 jobs could be supported annually if the target is achieved.
The 10-point plan is the culmination of three years of research by IWA, and will be presented to an audience of politicians and industry figures in Cardiff on Thursday.
The equivalent of 48% of Wales' electricity consumption was met from renewable sources in 2017, with the Welsh Government wanting to see that rise to 70% by 2030.
I had enough doom and gloom from the world, here's some proper tidy news from the small dragon land of Wales. I can't imagine 100% but It should also be noted Wales met its target for recycling 4 years early in 2017, so aiming higher than the targeted 70% shouldn't be considered too crazy.
Do Welshmen dream of Electric Sheep?
So it's nuclear free too? That's very ambitious.
