Government plans to create even more wind farms around the coast of Britain will not only help the environment but could also assist manufacturers in the Midlands, according to Birmingham Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
Enough electricity to power every home in the UK could come from these wind turbines by 2020.
Up to 7,000 turbines could be installed around the UK's coastline in a bid to boost the wind energy produced 30-fold by 2020.
Charlotte Ritchie, BCI head of policy, said: "The Government's announcements are extremely positive. What we have needed for a long time is a clear signal that renewable energy will form an important part of our medium to long-term energy strategy and this is a decisive move that does just that.
"These plans, together with the wind energy capacity already under construction will create an offshore wind industry that is double the size of that of any other country.
"While land-locked Birmingham may not benefit directly from this new way of generating energy, its businesses could. There is a real opportunity for manufacturers in the city to lead the way in renewable technologies.
"What businesses need is an assurance that renewable technologies are going to be commercially viable and the Government has provided that with its announcements on wind power. This is just the sort of boost that businesses need to start investing in renewable energy products.
"The demand for new wind turbines will increase dramatically, so it will be really big business. Hopefully some of our local businesses can help these plans to come to fruition quickly, by increasing the supply and reaping some of the benefits of this important industry."
Currently just two per cent of Britain's power comes from renewables, and wind is the source for less than one gigawatt.
By 2020 the Government hopes that it could provide around 34 gigawatts.
