  • Securing
    green jobs and growth

    "We are in a global race and the countries that succeed in that race, the economies in Europe that will prosper are those that are the greenest and the most energy-efficient. Energy consumption is set to grow by a third over the next two decades alone. And in a race for limited resources it is the energy-efficient that will win that race, it is the countries that prioritise green energy that will secure the biggest share of jobs and growth. Britain is one of the best places for green energy, green investment and crucially for green jobs anywhere in the world. But I want to go further, I want to bring our policies for driving energy efficiency together and really explain to the world, and particularly investors, what is available in Britain." David Cameron, Prime Minister.

  • Stimulating
    low carbon investment

    “Stimulating low carbon investment and the creation of green jobs are vital to stimulate the economy. We want to give investors and project developers across low-carbon technologies as much certainty as we can, as early as we can. That’s why we are launching a process that will enable investment decisions to be taken before changes to the electricity market come into effect, ensuring that renewable electricity projects can get built, bring investment and jobs. Nuclear and other forms of low carbon power mean highly-skilled jobs, sustainable growth, and the lasting legacy of a UK supply chain. The Government is absolutely committed to creating opportunities for the private sector to invest in the green skills and job opportunities that young people are looking for. The Green Deal and the Energy Company Obligation will generate new jobs at a national and local level, and will help the green economy to grow." Ed Davey, Energy & Climate Change Secretary
