“It’s great to see the Government putting job creation and in particular the development of new skills and training at the heart of their policy agenda, as part of the green economic recovery after the pandemic. The number of people working in the UK’s offshore wind is set to increase from 26,000 currently to over 69,000 over the next five years. We’re already working closely with Ministers to ensure the right programmes are in place to maximise employment opportunities – particularly in parts of the country which need levelling up, such as coastal communities, the north, Scotland and Wales”. 

“Ministers are right to highlight the massive opportunity which the UK has to demonstrate global leadership on tackling climate change at the COP26 summit in Glasgow in November. To achieve this, we need to continue to flesh out the pathway to net zero emissions across all Government departments. RenewableUK has already outlined new targets which we believe Ministers should adopt in floating wind, green hydrogen, onshore wind and marine energy. These will ensure that we maximise the economic benefits offered by renewable energy development, particularly in areas of the country where the Government is seeking to create fresh opportunities.”
