While many people may be looking to reduce the impact of prices from energy suppliers, a new report suggests the UK lacks the necessary skills to produce a low-carbon economy.
According to the Aldersgate Group, which comprises prominent thinktanks, non-government organisations and businesses, the government should launch a new training programme over the course of the next two years to train more people in green technology.
It advised that comprehensive training programmes should be run in tandem with the development of new renewable energy projects and nuclear power stations.
John Edmonds, chair of the Aldersgate Group report project, said: "The skills gap in the UK economy is well documented, with one in three firms already hampered by a shortage of skilled staff, from those needed to install new technology to scientists and engineers."
The government recently announced plans to construct more offshore wind farms and the first new nuclear reactor is scheduled to open in 2017.
