Skills for wind

The contuined success of renewable energy is dependent on attracting skilled workers. There were around 10,000 people employed in the wind and marine industries in 2010, and approximately 88,000 will be needed by 2021. 

This represents a huge opportunity to create UK jobs, and a practical way for people to apply their enthusiasm for renewable energy and the environment.

 

Visiting Thanet

When the Thanet offshore wind farm was completed in 2010, it was the largest in the world. The 100 turbines each stand 115m high, and cover an area about half the size of Manhattan. This dramatic site, located 7.5 miles off the coast of Ramsgate in Kent, is the trailblazer for the offshore industry, showing how it could be done successfully on such a large scale.
