DECC press release: Renewable energy, delivering green jobs, growth and clean energy


5 November 2013
 
Energy Secretary Edward Davey today reaffirmed the government’s commitment to the renewable energy sector, as further investment in offshore wind innovation projects was announced.
Speaking at the Renewable UK conference in Birmingham, Edward Davey said:
“The renewable energy sector supports 35,000 green jobs and the sector is crucial to green growth and energy security.

“A mix of technologies is vital to secure Britain’s energy supplies and reduce the environmental impact of powering our homes and businesses.
“The private sector has announced investment of £31 billion in renewable electricity generation over the last three years, and the UK remains one of the most attractive electricity investment markets anywhere in the world.”

The UK is the world leader in offshore wind power generation, with more capacity than any other country. Renewable energy capacity has increased by almost 40 per cent since 2012, with renewables now supplying a record of over 15 per cent share of electricity generation – around half way to the Government’s 2020 renewable electricity goals.
