Fife's renewable energy resources 'can help it develop jobs'

The renewable energy resources enjoyed by Fife in Scotland can help it to develop jobs in the future.

According to local newspaper the Courier, the area is in a good position to capitalise on the growth in the sector over recent years.

"Whatever happens in the coming years, the growth in renewable energy has presented Fife with an opportunity to develop a sector that can deliver highly-skilled jobs for generations to come," the news provider said.

It added that projects such as the ongoing research at St Andrews University into fuel cells will provide a boost for the renewable energy industry in the local area, while firms such as drinks giant Diageo and papermaker Tullis Russell are already going green.

Alex Salmond, Scotland's first minister, recently stated that Scotland is well placed to become a world leader in the field of renewable energy.

He was speaking ahead of meetings in Norway to discuss the potential to build the world's first floating offshore wind farm off the coast of the country.
