Scottish first minister suggests future demand for renewable energy courses

Comments made by Scottish first minister Alex Salmond indicate that demand for renewable energy courses may rise significantly in the near future.

Speaking at the opening of the Hydrogen Office in Fyfe, the politician pointed out that Scotland has an advantage over many other countries in terms of natural resources for generating green power.

He went on to suggest that renewable energy courses could be taken by workers in the nation to gain jobs in the industry.

The MP explained: "The development and deployment of hydrogen and fuel cell technologies across the energy sector can help accelerate the achievement of a truly low carbon economy, supporting skilled jobs in Scotland."

Hydrogen and fuel cell technology allows the Hydrogen Office to store energy generated from a wind turbine to be used at a later time.

This week, environment group Wadebridge Renewable Energy Network announced its intention to harness the sun and wind in Cornwall to supply Wadebridge with 30 per cent of the town's electricity.
