On Monday 23 April the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) announced that the UK and US governments will collaborate on a number of clean energy development agreements. The agreements will be announced at the Clean Energy Ministerial in London, which is taking place between 25 and 26 April and will be attended by energy ministers from around the world. The first research projects to receive support will be those to develop large-scale floating wind turbines. Energy and climate change secretary Ed Davey said floating turbines will "be able to locate in ever deeper waters where the wind is stronger but without the expense".
