Government policy could prompt interest in renewable energy courses

Demand for renewable energy courses could rise as a result of the government's commitment to green issues.

Further evidence of this strategy appeared this week, with the Department of Energy and Climate Change announcing that at least 1,000 Green Deal apprentices will receive state funding for their training.

Deputy prime minister Nick Clegg described the policy as being an example of how the government can work with businesses to achieve a low-carbon economy.

In his view, it is vital that funding is made available building up green skills, which could mean greater interest in renewable energy courses.

"We want to be the greenest government ever. We will reshape the economy, change the way we power our transport, heat our homes and generate our electricity," added Mr Clegg.

Last week, energy and climate change secretary Chris Huhne was the keynote speaker at CentreForum in London and described in his speech how the UK must keep its options open regarding low-carbon electricity generation.
