RenewableUK and Unite the Union have joined forces for a campaign to ensure the development of renewable energy industry provides significant benefits to UK businesses.

The two groups have signed an accord designed to encourage the benefits of renewable energy to create jobs and boost business. 

It's also hoped the partnership will help secure a massive industry expansion with RenewableUK’s chief executive, Maria McCaffery, commenting that "the expansion of the wind, wave and tidal industry has the potential to generate up to 120,000 jobs over the next ten years"

This view was echoed by Unite's national officer for energy, Kevin Coyne, who said that his organisation was committed to the massive potential for growth and employment that the renewable energy sector provides. 

Currently, around 12,000 people are working full-time in the renewable energy industry.
