Renewable energy course demand could grow with new investment

A source from Friends of the Earth has suggested the government could invite further investment in green power facilities by making its long-term plans clear, which could lead to more interest in renewable energy courses.

Mike Childs, head of climate change at the organisation, described how the UK has "massive potential" to create a series of offshore wind power platforms.

Such projects are likely to create demand for renewable energy courses, but Mr Childs stressed that investors will want to know exactly what the government intends to do beyond the next decade.

"There is an information gap that will make investors understandably very nervous. If investors are nervous, then the money doesn't flow," he added.

In his opinion, more work needs to go into convincing people controlling capital that developments in the UK are a profitable option.

Sustainable power is proving successful in Northern Ireland, where a recent report showed that nearly ten per cent of electricity consumed in 2009/10 came from renewable resources.
