The announcement will no doubt be digested by civil servants working in the Home Office who are currently working out how best to introduce and Immigration Cap on those from outside the European Economic Area without negatively affecting UK businesses or the economic recovery. At present a number of engineering roles in the electricity generation, transmission and distribution sector are officially considered to be in Shortage by the UK Border Agency, therefore any cap could endanger any such projects.
Major investment will be made by the National Grid in network replacements and new energy connections, such as wind farms and gas import sites. The news follows comments made by minister in the new Conservative / Liberal Democrat Coalition Government relating to energy and climate change programmes.
