The world’s biggest wind turbine, seven times the height of Nelson’s Column, is being developed with £25 million funding from the European Union.

Scientists claim a single super turbine would be capable of providing electricity for a year for between 15,000 and 20,000 households.

Its blades would each be about 410ft long and sit on a tower up to 700ft high, making the structure, from base to the tips of the blades, about 1,100ft high, taller than The Shard in London, western Europe’s tallest building.
