Commenting on the possible closure of two Vestas wind turbine manufacturing plants in South England, Friends of the Earth’s energy campaigner Nick Rau said:

“Allowing this country’s only wind turbine manufacturer to close these manufacturing plants would be an absolute tragedy – the UK has the best wind resources in the whole of Europe and we should be creating green energy jobs, not shedding them.

“The Government must now take action to keep wind turbine manufacturing jobs in Britain, tackle barriers to renewable energy, and make this country a world leader in developing a clean and prosperous low-carbon economy.”
