Train4TradeSkills News: Sheffield wins Britain’s renewable crown
A report from Which? Magazine has listed the top ten hotspots for renewable energy in the UK, with Sheffield coming out on top, as the city increased its renewable energy capacity to 3.5kW electrical per 1000 people.
HVP Magazine reports that it’s all down to the government’s Feed In Tariffs initiative, which has popularised small-scale renewable energy projects over the last 18 months, resulting in 400% growth and jobs for contractors specialising in renewable energy.
And it turns out that Sheffield has made the best progress over the last year, finishing top of the list. The other cities that make the list include Leeds, Liverpool, London and Bristol.
As renewable energy becomes more popular and the Government’s Green Deal kicks in, more homeowners will make their homes more energy efficient and use things like solar panels and cavity wall insulation.
This will of course create more jobs for contractors who specialise in renewable energy. While Sheffield leads the way at the moment, other cities in the UK will likely catch up in the near future.
Train4TradeSkills has recently launched a brand new renewable energy course. To find out more go to www.train4tradeskills.com
