I have to admit to being a bit of a sceptic where climate change is concerned, but green issues do make sense to me.
Today Jim Mather, Minister for Enterprise, Energy and Tourism, will visit Fife Energy Park where he will announce £13million of new funding.
The cash, approved by the board of Scottish Enterprise, is earmarked to upgrade the quayside and undertake coastal protection works at the 134-acre former Kvaerner oil fabrication yard at Methil.
This investment is part of Scotland's drive to secure a significant share of the UK offshore wind market, estimated to be worth £19 billion and to have the potential of creating more than 800 jobs and up to £198 million in gross value add (GVA) over the next 10 years.
Fife Energy Park was identified as a key project by the Scottish Government to receive accelerated funding during 2009/10 as part of its economic recovery programme responding to the current recession.
Mr Mather said further developing the park would create hundreds of local jobs. "We want all areas of Scotland to be able to fully harness our vast potential for cheap, clean and green electricity."
Any sensible project which enables electricity to be clean and cheaper will be welcomed in Scotland. We pay more per unit than England at present. Well done the Scottish government.
