Within hours of the UK's general election result being announced - and before new Energy Secretary Amber Rudd even knew she'd got the job - the UK wind and marine renewables industries were calling on the new Government to send an early signal that it's serious about supporting low-carbon energy to attract investment and create jobs. This comes in the wake of Conservative plans to end subsidies for onshore wind farms.

With almost 500 corporate members, RenewableUK is the trade and professional body for the UK wind and marine renewables sector. And its Chief Executive Maria McCaffery said: "We urge the new administration to confirm the importance of onshore wind as an essential part of our electricity mix, as it is one of the most cost effective ways to generate electricity, and is consistently supported by two-thirds of the public.

"As long as we can continue on our current course, onshore wind will be the cheapest of all power sources by 2020, so it makes sense to support it. More than 34,000 people now owe their livelihoods to the British wind industry, onshore and offshore."
