Tens of thousands of new roles look set to be created in the renewables industry in the future, according a leading organisation.
In news that could interest people looking for project and change management jobs in the energy sector, trade body for the UK's wind and marine renewables industries, RenewableUK, said that the types it looks after are no longer alternative energies.
Instead, chief executive Maria McCaffery said that wind and marine renewables are now mainstream after a "momentous year" in 2011.
For 2012 and the next few years, she believes the UK is on the verge of a huge change in the energy sector.
"We are on the cusp of a low carbon revolution – a revolution that is going to pump billions of pounds of investment into our economy," Ms Mcaffery explained.
"It is going to create tens of thousands of new 'green collar' jobs and it will establish the United Kingdom as the undisputed world leader in the development of both offshore wind, and wave and tidal technology."
However, she did add that there is going to be no let-up in the challenges facing the sector as deployment increases to try and help meet targets that have previously been set.
It comes after Sero was awarded a new contract on January 13th to help counter the effects of wind farms on the UK's air defence radar.
According to the company, the installation of three new radar systems allows the development of up to four gigawatts of renewable energy, enough to power two million homes in the UK.
Ms Mcaffery added that things are improving: "It is fair to say that we have cemented our position in the energy arena and we are no longer an alternative energy; we are mainstream and it looks set to continue as we move into 2012."
