Renewable Energy

From the mid 1900s renewable energy began to contribute to the electricity generated in the UK. There are now in excess of 10,000employees working in the large-scale wind energy industries. 

As a high-growth industry, renewable energy has bucked the overall employment trend in a spectacular way by a near doubling of the workforce in recent years. The ongoing challenge is to sustain these recruitment levels given the widely reported shortages of skilled engineers and graduates.
