In Energy Voice today:
We are seeing the first green shoots of the economic recovery we can make along Scotland’s east coast through new offshore wind projects. Seagreen will create around 400 jobs during construction and will deliver an estimated £1 billion-plus in economic benefits to Scotland and the UK. Much of that economic benefit as well as those jobs will be in Angus, including high quality, full-time jobs that will work out of Montrose Port to service the wind farm throughout its 25-year lifetime. Construction will start next year, and when it’s completed in 2022/23, Seagreen will be Scotland’s single largest source of renewable energy, powering over 1 million homes and offsetting 1.6 million tonnes of carbon emissions each year.
