UK Government commits £960 million to support clean energy manufacturing
The UK Government has this evening (November 17) committed £960 million for a Green Industries Growth Accelerator to support clean energy manufacturing.
Responding, Claire Mack, Chief Executive of Scottish Renewables, said:
"The UK sits on the cusp of a golden opportunity in clean energy. Making the investments that matter now will mean the difference between creating winners and losers in the years ahead.
"There is no doubt that our future is one of clean energy investment, focused on creating high quality, sustainable jobs and producing clean power to run homes and businesses securely and affordably.
"This announcement provides a shot in the arm for a sector with tremendous potential.
"The devil however, will be in the detail and we look forward to working with government to target this funding in the smartest ways in the years to come."
