Scots to grab 60% of UK onshore wind work – Energy Voice

Scotland is anticipated to get 60% of the created jobs from the UK onshore wind sector, according to a new report issued by BVG Associates.

Of the 18,000 potential jobs created during the construction phase and 8,500 long-term skilled jobs thereafter, Scotland is to win the lionshare while “delivering a net payback to consumers” of £1.6 billion.

According to today’s report, the biggest onshore wind opportunities between 2019 and 2025 are in fabricating towers and blades, part refurbishment and the development of UK installation teams.

The report – supported by ScottishPower Renewables, Vattenfall and Statkraft – has analysed five new Contracts for Difference (CfD)auction rounds, each with a top end capacity of one gigawatt
