The Government finally switches on to a clean growth strategy

Conservative Party ministers chose a converted warehouse deep in East London yesterday to outline a multi-billion pound, decades long plan to power economic growth. And the template for this ambitious vision is Britain’s wind power industry.

“You would not have seen this 10 years ago,” quipped one energy industry veteran.

But the success of the 640ft high turbines which stand in UK waters is hard to ignore. The offshore wind industry has helped create thousands of highly skilled jobs at factories in Hull and the Isle of Wight, and a burgeoning local supply chain across the country. Its plummeting costs mean they are also helping to keep energy bills lower while cutting carbon emissions.  

In a 164-page document crammed with 50 low-carbon policies and plans, the Government has planted the seeds for a new era of green economic growth which replicates the offshore wind model and offers major opportunities for UK plc.
