CVDK: Where is the entrepreneurs come into this?
Lord Smith: The big players can still dominate here. But why should they? Why build in China, and ship it here to get fitted. We have the companies here and the people with the expertise to build locally. Companies want this on our door step. The entrepreneurs can step in here.
CVDK: Do you see SSE as being a global leader in renewables?
Lord Smith: No. We took the decision to be a British company. We provide lots of utilities here and we are very much a UK based company. It would be unlikely if we moved abroad.
