Commenting on today’s speech from the Secretary of State for Energy & Climate Change on UK energy policy direction, Aspire Capital Managing Director said:
“Aspire Capital welcomes the Secretary of State’s speech on future UK energy policy and her confirmation that offshore wind will continue to play an important role subject to cost cutting conditions being met.
“The UK currently leads the world in the deployment of offshore wind. Aspire Capital Group, along with other key players in the sector, has this week published an Offshore Wind Vision which shows that the technology is becoming increasingly cost competitive, has already created 13,000 jobs, is building a healthy UK supply chain and providing valuable export opportunities.
“The UK has been a great place to invest in offshore wind and Aspire Capital along with its technical partners has outlined an ambitious investment programme.
