GMB, the energy union, in response to the United Kingdom government announcement on offshore wind jobs, said the "green jobs revolution" has largely been a "figment of politicians" imagination, across all parties, and those pushing for more renewables in the system.

The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy said the Offshore Wind Sector Deal included a £250m offshore wind growth partnership, meant to ensure companies working in relevant coastal regions "continue to be competitive and are leaders internationally in the next generation of offshore wind innovations".

That's the bold statement from Energy and Clean Growth Minister Claire Perry, who has announced the launch of the new Offshore Wind Sector Deal, led jointly by government and industry.

In return, the industry has committed to increase the share of British content in new projects to 60 per cent, from about 48 per cent in recent years.

Scottish Energy Minister Paul Wheelhouse said: "Offshore wind has a key role to play in achieving our ambitious energy targets and delivering a low-carbon energy system".

'Scotland has massive offshore wind potential with a large share of Europe's offshore wind resources and the commitment that the sector deal represents from government, academia and industry will help ensure that our world-leading offshore wind sector develops successfully and sustainably'.
