Scottish Renewable Energy Jobs at Risk

One in six jobs in Scotland's renewable energy sector could be lost within the next 12 months, according to an industry body. Scottish Renewables said thousands of posts could go as a result of changes to UK government support schemes. But it added that most firms feel positive about the future, with many having diversified overseas, BBC reported. The UK government made a commitment at the general election to scrap onshore wind subsidies. It said the renewables industry had been "a strong success in Scotland thanks to UK government support". A poll by The Scottish Renewables -- the representative body of the country's renewable energy industry -- found that its members predict a 16.9% decrease in full-time jobs in Scotland's renewable industry over the next year. Around 21,000 people are currently employed by the industry in Scotland.
