Wind Energy College news proves Hull's leading green energy status

Hull North MP Diana Johnson has responded to news that a National College of Wind Energy will be based in the Humber area.

Hull North MP Diana Johnson said: "This announcement confirms Hull's status as a leading UK centre for green energy - especially in wind and marine technology.

"After our local efforts over the past few years that secured the breakthrough news earlier this year that Siemens will invest in Hull, making sure that those much-needed skilled jobs didn't go abroad, one of the important next steps is ensuring specialised educational opportunities in our area that help local people to get the new jobs.

 "After the disappointment we had when the Coalition Government decided to site the Green Bank in Edinburgh, rather than Hull, I hope that this National College of Wind Energy will be in Hull."
