Plans for the world's largest construction of offshore windfarms - near the British coast - were announced last week. These will help the UK achieve its 5 per cent renewable energy target by 2003.

However, construction is yet to be approved. Up to 540 turbines are planned, each up to 100m tall and between 1.5 and 10km offshore.

They are expected to provide 1,600 megawatts of energy.
