The South West is set for a jobs bonanza after The Crown Estate recently announced it wants to generate enough electricity from the Celtic Sea to power four million homes.
It has confirmed that it is looking to unlock 4GW of energy from the Celtic Sea by 2035. That could mean thousands of green energy jobs in Cornwall and the South West by developing the floating wind industry
Crucially, The Crown Estate, which manages the seabed around England, Wales and Northern Ireland, wants to establish a new industrial sector in the UK.
It said it wants to ensure that the South West, Wales and the wider UK benefit from the opportunity to become a world leader in floating wind technology, with significant new investment in jobs, skills and infrastructure.
