Energy minister Andrew Bowie in visit to Suffolk projects

 Energy Minister Andrew Bowie is on a fact-finding visit to Suffolk where
he found out about the job prospects at Sizewell C – but also heard the
concerns of those opposed to the project. Mr Bowie is minister of state at
the new Department for Energy and Net Zero – responsible for maintaining
the nation’s power and moving to a greener economy.

He started his visit at
Suffolk New College in Ipswich where he visited its Net Zero Skills Centre.
He and local MP Tom Hunt met with students and got to meet with some of the
people participating in their apprenticeship program. The Net Zero Skills
Centre aims to equip and train students with knowledge and experience of
sustainable technologies.

Mr Bowie later headed up the coast where he met
groups and businesses concerned about the impact of Sizewell C on the area.
Alison Downes of Stop Sizewell C said: “We welcomed Mr Bowie to Theberton
& Eastbridge Village Hall this afternoon. “We reiterated our continued
opposition to Sizewell C and our view that the East Suffolk Council
election results amount to a rejection of his Government’s energy
policies.” The meeting included Harry Young, Chair of the Suffolk Coast
Destination Management Organisation and Nick Burfield, former Policy
Director of Suffolk Chamber of Commerce. Adam Rowlands, Suffolk Area
Manager of the RSPB, was also able to join the meeting at Stop Sizewell
C’s invitation.
