On a visit to Norfolk and Suffolk, the Energy Minister Michael Fallon described East Anglia as the country's Energy Capital.
He was officially opening Greater Gabbard off the Suffolk coast, the world's second largest offshore windfarm.
The Greater Gabbard windfarm off the coast of Lowestoft is to be officially opened by the Energy Minister Michael Fallon later today (Wednesday).
The wind farm features around 140 wind turbines which are connected to the national grid at Sizewell in Suffolk. The wind farm will be run by an operations centre at Lowestoft which will employ around 100 people.
