Offshore Wind Industry Council (OWIC) COP26 report highlights need to “level up” over 43,000 workers for wind energy transition in the North East and Scotland.
“The number of people working in direct and indirect jobs in the UK’s offshore wind industry will rise significantly from 26,000 today to over 69,800 by 2026.
Most of the jobs will be created in parts of the country which urgently need levelling up, including the north-east of England, Yorkshire and The Humber, East Anglia and Scotland.
This will be supported by over £60.8bn of private sector investment over the next five years.”
