INCREASED OFFSHORE WIND AMBITION BY 2030 – WWF Scotland comment

Commenting on the release today of the Scottish Government’s new ambition to increase offshore wind capacity [1], Fabrice Leveque, head of policy at WWF Scotland said:

“Offshore wind is already powering hundreds of thousands of Scottish homes and this new plan will help grow an industry that’s vital to reach net-zero climate emissions by 2045. Each project creates hundreds of jobs and can help put Scotland on a path to a green recovery. In order to ensure local communities and businesses benefit, it’s imperative the UK and Scottish Governments work closely together to ensure as much work as possible goes to local supply chains.”
