Green Business Can Succeed, Spurs Partnership Ideas Among Entrepreneurs

Norstec is a major government initiative that Prime Minister David Cameron calls “a second, clean energy revolution in the North Sea.” It will dramatically increase the amount of offshore wind production in the North Sea.

The partnership, first announced in April, includes over 40 key industry and government partners — about half of those being companies, including Siemens and Vestas — and could have major implications for the future of green business and energy in the UK.
Norstec estimates that over 185,000 new jobs could be created in the UK by 2020 due to this major new push in offshore wind farms, with the potential to generate the electricity equivalent of 1 billion barrels of oil per year from UK wind production by 2050, matching North Sea gas and oil production.

Cameron’s full statement released by the UK government on Norstec was: “I continue to be strongly supportive of the UK offshore renewables sector and am delighted to see Norstec rising from the waves. As I said when I launched this network last April we are on the cusp of a second, clean energy revolution in the North Sea. Close collaboration between industry and government will be critical to making this happen.”

The initiative is good news for manufacturers of wind turbines and signals that the UK will be aggressive in weaning itself off of fossil fuels. This opens the door for entrepreneurs and green manufacturers — even small suppliers — to ride the impending wave of green enthusiasm and spending. Many experts say that collaboration will be key — collaboration between manufacturers across the supply chain, installers, the government, and big players in the energy industry.

Former Tesla Battery Expert Leading Lyten Into New Lithium-Sulfur Battery Era — Podcast:

I don't like paywalls. You don't like paywalls. Who likes paywalls? Here at CleanTechnica, we implemented a limited paywall for a while, but it always felt wrong — and it was always tough to decide what we should put behind there. In theory, your most exclusive and best content goes behind a paywall. But then fewer people read it! We just don't like paywalls, and so we've decided to ditch ours. Unfortunately, the media business is still a tough, cut-throat business with tiny margins. It's a never-ending Olympic challenge to stay above water or even perhaps — gasp — grow. So ...
