Scottish Offshore Wind Sector to Create More Jobs

Friday, September 17, 2010

According to a September 16 report from IB Times, Scottish Renewable and Scottish Enterprise have published a report which anticipates that Scotland’s offshore wind industry is set to create 28,000 jobs by 2020. This is alongside a further 20,000 jobs created indirectly in neighboring industries. In turn this will create an $11.1b boost to the economy. The report sets out four scenarios as to future growth and says that the above can only be achieved with the correct investment in grid, port facilities and skills. Failure to do so could lead to the creation of only 900 jobs.
