Technology centre could lead to demand for renewable energy courses

A new technology and innovation centre unveiled by the government this week could prompt some manufacturing industry figures to enrol in renewable energy courses to develop business ideas.

Deputy prime minister Nick Clegg suggested the UK should be at the forefront of science and claimed a new facility focused on high-value manufacturing could push forward the country's knowledge and commercial opportunities in this area.

The technology and innovation centre could inspire interest in renewable energy courses as more individuals aim to develop their understanding of green power devices.

Mr Clegg said: "The banking crisis made one thing clear: Britain needs a new kind of growth. It is not right, sensible or fair to be dependent solely on the City of London."

The Department for Business, Innovation and Skills has invited parties to register their interest in the initiative, which will aim to commercialise specific technological areas.

Speaking to Business Green, a spokesperson said a decision regarding the location of the first facility will be made in March.
