The government has announced plans to encourage individuals to start their own business. The “New Industry, New Jobs” scheme announced on Monday included £250 million to invest in low carbon business opportunities and innovation. This will include initiatives on low carbon vehicles, as well as the nuclear and renewable energy industries. Business Secretary, Lord Mandelson, said “Backing green, low carbon businesses and technologies will be a priority for the new fund. Ed Miliband and I are determined British business should be world leaders in the technologies and services the world will need as we use energy more efficiently and combat climate change.”
