Positive energy: govt backs wind farm jobs

Posted: 01 Nov 2012 12:00 PM PDTThe government has pledged its support for the development of new wind farms around the UK, which would help to create thousands of construction jobs and other roles in the energy sector.

It follows a period of much confusion in the cabinet, when the new energy minister John Hayes earlier this week claimed that the UK had more than enough wind farms and that there were enough in the pipeline to ensure that the country would reach its target for renewables by the year 2020.

Speaking to the Daily Telegraph, he said there needs to be more evidence on wind, adding that better understanding communities’ genuine desires is vital.

“If you look at what has been built, what has consent and what is in the planning system, much of it will not get through and will be rejected. Even if a minority of what’s in the system is built we are going to reach our 2020 target,” he added.

However, his comments raised much concern among green campaigners and energy bodies, who noted that it could lead to a rise in energy bills and also questioned whether the proposed creation of green construction jobs could be affected.

Maf Smith, the deputy chief executive of Renewable UK, said it “came as a surprise” that the new minister has said one thing to his organisation and another to the press.

“We are on the eve of the publication of the Energy Bill, a crucial time for energy policy, with huge investment decisions to be made that will lead to tens of thousands of jobs over the next decade,” he added.

“If we are to see these jobs and investment realised confidence must be retained and that means consistency.”

No caps

Energy secretary Ed Davey was quick to respond to Mr Hayes’ comment, however, guaranteeing that there has been “no change” to government policy on renewable energy.

“There are no targets – or caps – for individual renewable technologies such as onshore wind,” he explained.

The energy secretary added that the cabinet is currently consulting on ways of making sure local communities “feel the benefit” of hosting wind farms, and where they are deemed appropriate, this will help to create construction work for dozens of people on each project.

Just last month, work began on one of the largest renewable projects in the world, the East Anglia Offshore Windfarm, which will generate around 7,200 megawatts of electricity upon completion.

Power to the people: Hitachi to create 10,000 jobs

Posted: 31 Oct 2012 06:00 AM PDTRising energy bills and the current state of the British energy system have been at the forefront of a number of debates over the last few weeks.Now, Japanese engineering giant Hitachi has announced that it plans to build a new £8 million nuclear power plant in Anglesey to replace the existing Wylfa plant, allaying precious concerns around a potential energy shortage.Around 6,000 construction jobs could be created over the duration of the project.The company has also committed to building a similar 1300MW advanced boiling water reactor (ABWR) at Oldbury in Gloucestershire, which would see a further 5,000 jobs in construction.Hitachi president Hiroaki Nakanishi has called this a “100-year commitment” to the UK.This news has been very well received by industry experts and politicians. Prime minister David Cameron said: “I am determined that Britain competes and thrives in the global race for investment. This is a decades-long, multi-billion pound vote of confidence in the UK, that will contribute vital new infrastructure to power our economy.”Money for the construction of the first power plant will benefit the British economy thanks to locally-sourced materials, personnel and services.“It will support up to 12,000 jobs during construction and thousands more permanent highly skilled roles once the new power plants are operational, as well as stimulating exciting new industrial investments in the UK’s nuclear supply chain. I warmly welcome Hitachi as a major new player in the UK energy sector,” added Mr Cameron.Hitachi has a strong reputation for delivering projects such as this on budget and on time.Next month will see the publication of the new Energy Bill aimed at bringing about reforms to the electricity market to ensure energy security and encourage companies like Hitachi to invest in the UK.The new nuclear reactors could power up to 14 million homes for a 60 year period when operating at full capacity.“Our aim is to build safe nuclear power stations, on time and on budget, to provide long-term, affordable energy,” commented Tatsuro Ishizuka, vice-president of Hitachi.
