From Scotland: The Hydro Nation Annual Report 2019 published today in good time for Reporting Scotland at 6.30:
In July 2019 Scottish Enterprise published new, independent research which shows the impact of the sector in Scotland; it employs 16,600 direct jobs, has a turnover of £3.7 billion and exports of £170 million. The sector overall has grown by an impressive 29% in the past 3 years, whilst over 60% of companies have plans for growth. These are extremely encouraging figures, and within the sector once again Scottish Water continues to perform strongly and is a real public sector success story.
The full report has several heart-warming reports of Scottish engineers helping in the Ganges Delta and in Malawi.
