Hull North MP Diana Johnson has called for longer term backing for offshore wind energy following her attendance at the Siemens careers awareness event held in Hull today.
Hull North MP Diana Johnson said: "It was great to see so many local people registering their interest in the Siemens green energy jobs that are coming to Hull.
"It has taken several years and a combined effort from Hull City Council, local MPs, East Riding Council, the Humber LEP and Chamber of Commerce, along with local businesses working together, to secure this investment for Hull.
Diana and other Humber MPs visited an offshore wind farm in the North Sea to see the investment being made in the Humber 'Energy Estuary' by Dong Energy and others.
Following G7 leaders' commitment to eliminate fossil fuel use this century, Diana Johnson MP today asked the Prime Minister for an interim UK 2030 decarbonisation target within two years.
Doing this would deliver huge further private investment in renewable energy in areas like Hull and the Humber.
