Conference to explore UK energy future

UK energy is to be discussed at a conference in Scotland later this month.

The Scottish Low Carbon Investment Conference will look at where money needs to be invested in order to create the renewable energy developments the country needs.

Alex Salmond, Scotland's first minister, has claimed that if cash is spent in the right areas, as many as 60,000 green jobs could be created in his country by the end of the decade.

He stated that the conference will "explore how we can capitalise on Scotland's rich natural energy resources and financial expertise to deliver a new green economy".

Speaking at Aberdeen Asset Management's Conference, Mr Salmond added that "enormous opportunities" are available for firms to move into a low carbon economy which is also sustainable.

The Scottish Low Carbon Investment Conference - which is supported by the government north of the border - is to be held September 28th and 29th 2010 at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre.
