Offshore Energy Network to Create Jobs

Renewable energy group Norstec has been back by the government with the aim of creating thousands of jobs in the North East, reports the Northern Echo.

Norstec is a group of several companies in the North East, including the Deep Ocean Group and JDR Cables. The companies met to discuss how to make the best use of the potential of the sector which is expected to create around 1,000 jobs in the area. This is a major boost to offshore wind power as it shows a concerted effort by the government to back the sector.

The Prime Minister has stated that “close collaboration between industry and government will be critical to making this happen.” The Climate Change Secretary then added “The offshore wind industry represents a massive growth opportunity for the UK and our neighbours around the northern seas, bringing jobs and reenergising once thriving industrial heartlands on the east coast and beyond.”

The grant, which was given the day after the discoveries is intended to help the regional development of the area.

20% of UK Workforce has a Science Job

The Financial Times has reported that approximately one fifth of the UK workforce has a science based job.

5.8 million people are scientists or use science skills daily, the Science Council has discovered in a recent study. The number includes ‘secondary science workers’ such as nurses or software engineers. Scientists were found to be in industries as diverse as education, finance and farming, as well as more traditional scientific sectors, such as the chemical industry.

Chief executive of the Science Council, Diana Garnham, has said that secondary science roles can be “found literally everywhere in the economy.” The research indicates that by 2030, there could be over 7 million people involved in science in some way, prompting Diana Garnham to say “the research begins to explain… why there is such huge demand for people with science qualifications.”

Teesside's Renewable Energy Renaissance

The Financial Times has reported that Teesside is becoming a hotbed for renewable energy investment, with around thirty low carbon investments.

These investments are set to be added to, with various proposals set to be implemented. They range from an anaerobic energy research plant to a processing plant for over 400,000 tonnes of household waste to a £200 million advanced gasification plant for the new energy and technology plant near Billingham. These will all create jobs and investment.

Another proposed scheme is the Tenergis project, which will process crude oil and produce diesel, kerosene and hydrogen. The North East of England Process Industry Cluster (NEPIC) estimates over 50 million metric tonnes of waste is produced annually, with over three quarters being recyclable. NEPIC believes the government should review its policies on industry and energy to protect the UK’s industrial base from carbon taxation. The hesitancy has left projects such as a £500 million biomass plant on hold in the area.
