North East wind farm development boosts the UK’s growing offshore energy reputation
A new study by financial analysts Ernst and Young has placed the UK at the top of the global list of counteries in which to invest in offshore wind energy.
This encouraging news comes at a time when the wind farm installation off the coast of Hartlepool nears its end.
Once the scheme is completed, it will add to the UK’s growing reputation as a world leader for offshore energy production.
Nick Medic, the director of offshore renewables for the energy trade association RenewableUK, said: “The UK’s offshore wind sector is at number one where it rightly belongs. The challenge now is to ensure that it stays there.
Working together we can build a sector we are all proud off, leading the world in job creation, clean energy production and billions of pounds of continued investment”.
