On this occasion, it is the energy expertise of the northern European countries that the UK is keen to tap. Cameron announced on Thursday that both Vatenfall and Vestas will be creating new jobs in Britain.
Vantenfall will set up a new HQ in London, employing 50 people. The Swedish energy producer already runs Thanet, the world’s biggest offshore wind farm, located off the Kent coast, and said on Wednesday it wants to develop another massive farm in the North Sea. A London HQ seems a natural step given this level of investment, and could quickly grow from 50 people.
