Renewable industry slams flawed KPMG energy report

·         Gas prices have driven fuel bills up, not renewables
·         Wind costs make up less than 1% of average household fuel bills
·         Only two new nuclear plants at most likely to be operational by 2020 
·         KPMG report fails to consider the whole cost of new power plants

£1.2 million training initiative set up in groundbreaking partnership of renewables industry and Government to tackle green skills shortage

·          New organisation, the Renewables Training Network, will bridge skills gap in industry.
·          RenewableUK secures £600,000-worth of support from business for new body, matched by £600,000 of government funding.
·          Paving the way for over 77,500 new jobs in UK wind, wave and tidal industries and supply chain within next ten years.
