700 wind energy jobs announced

Responding to news that German manufacturing giant Siemens is to develop an offshore wind turbine production facility in the UK to meet future demand, creating 700 jobs, Friends of the Earth's Executive director Andy Atkins said:

'This is fantastic news - it shows that as Ministers set stronger policies for a green economy, businesses invest in the UK.

'But it should only be the beginning - the next Government must make the creation of a low-carbon future an urgent priority.

'Slashing energy waste and developing our huge renewable energy potential will generate tens of thousands of new jobs, reduce our reliance on fossil fuels and help make the UK a world leader in fighting climate change.'
