Consumers who want to compare energy deals could, in the next few years, be using power derived from wind power in Scotland.
The country's first minister, Alex Salmond, said the green energy sector could see investment of around £30 billion in order to turn it into a vital part of Scotland's economy, the Courier reported.
Mr Salmond commented that the Scottish government is committed to the renewable energy industry.
"Offshore wind offers huge economic rewards to Scotland with an expected £30 billion of investment planned over the next ten years," he said.
"Clearly there remain challenges ahead but it is clear Scotland has the expertise, the ambition and the momentum to build an offshore wind industry that is a sustainable and integral part of Scotland's economic landscape."
The minister's comments come after energy supplier Gamesa announced its intention to build an offshore wind technology centre in Glasgow and a turbine manufacturing base in Dundee.
