Green power figures could boost interest in renewable energy courses

Interest in renewable energy courses could be stoked by the news that sustainable sources accounted for the largest proportion of electricity production in their history for a period during 2010.

The figures were released by the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) today (December 23rd) and showed wind energy output rise by 36.9 per cent, with overall green power sources providing 8.6 per cent of the total electricity supply in the third quarter of the year.

Speaking to Business Green, a spokesperson for RenewableUK described how the statistics demonstrate how much of an impact wind turbines can have, with the success in this field potentially boosting the number of technicians signing up for renewable energy courses.

"We are delighted because this shows that we as an industry were right all along in promoting the potential of this technology," added the RenewableUK representative.

This week, the DECC started a consultation into the use of microgeneration devices and the skills, information and technology that the country can aim for in this industry.
