TAG Energy Solutions has signed up to industry body RenewableUK’s new Wind Energy Charter, which has been created to highlight how the industry will benefit the UK economy.
The Charter sets out how the wind energy industry is delivering significant benefits to the UK and its economy as well as the industry’s intentions to deliver continued investment, which will help the UK to prosper in the future.
It is formed around three key principles, which the wind energy industry intends to apply to fulfil its role in its partnership with the UK and Devolved Governments and to maximise the benefits to the UK through investment in wind energy.
These principles are:
• To invest in the prosperity and energy security of the UK
• To provide financial security for families by creating tens of thousands of long-term jobs
• To provide clean, safe and affordable energy that will power the UK today for future generations
TAG Energy Solutions, which manufactures foundations, monopiles, sub-stations and jackets for offshore wind developments from its multi-million pound state-of-the-art production facility on the banks of the River Tees in Billingham in North East England, is one of a group of supply chain organisations backing the Charter.
Alex Dawson, Chief Executive of TAG Energy Solutions who signed the Charter on behalf of the company, said: “We wholly support the principles of RenewableUK’s Wind Energy Charter. The industry can have a major impact on the UK economy, both in terms of future energy generation and the number of high quality, long-term employment opportunities it can create.
“This Charter is an important pledge by the UK renewable industry as it represents the clear vision the sector has for the future as we enter a key period in the industry’s history.”
