Last week, Prime Minister Theresa May officially opened The Energy Centre at Berkshire College of Agriculture, Maidenhead.

The facility was created by biomass company LC Energy in partnership with Berkshire College of Agriculture (BCA) and Thames Valley Berkshire Local Enterprise Partnership.

The opening of The Energy Centre at BCA will lead to accredited technical courses in renewable energy for students, which LC Energy says marks a key development in delivering the skills required by employers to help the UK meet its renewable energy targets.

Theresa May said: “I was very pleased to go back to Berkshire College of Agriculture to hear of the innovative work the college is doing and to open the new energy centre. It’s vital that young people have the education and skills to take on the jobs needed for the future.

“I was pleased to be able to meet with students who, through using the new energy centre, will be given the training and opportunity to make a real difference to help protect our planet for future generations.”
