Government reforms could prompt further interest in electrical courses

Electrical courses could be set for greater interest after the government announced the approval of a reform that will improve the confidence of developers of energy projects.

Charles Hendry, energy minister, explained that the Energy National Policy Statements remove the element of uncertainty for firms considering investing in power supply initiatives.

"Far too often the planning system has resulted in delay and indecision over major energy projects and things simply not getting built," he said.

The Infrastructure Planning Commission will use the new strategy documents in future, which decentralisation minister Greg Clark suggested could result in billions of pounds worth of investment being committed in the UK.

In his view, this should help create jobs and allow for real economic growth in the country.

This month, the coalition government published its Electricity Market Reform White Paper, which explored the best way of attracting investment in the industry, keeping consumers' bills down and cutting carbon emissions.
