The green energy sector will create jobs in the UK's coastal areas, business energy users might be interested to hear.
According to Meg Hillier, shadow secretary of state for energy and climate change, employment prospects are becoming viable on the north-east coast, which "is very important for offshore wind", while Scotland "has got oil, gas and future offshore and onshore".
"You've got Wales which has got huge opportunity potentially for maritime and tidal and in the longer term there is wind as well," she pointed out, adding that the "energy coast" - around Barrow-in-Furness and up to Sellafield - has a "mixture of technologies".
"There's some interesting marine stuff going on [around] the south west coast as well. So actually there are interesting places to have jobs and places where they really need jobs."
Ms Hillier's remarks come after Hull hosted a jobs fair which featured businesses looking for employees who can be trained in green energy skills.
