The article deals with job opportunities in the green energy industry being promoted by British Prime Minister David Cameron at the Conservative Party Conference in October 2010, as the Treasury may decide to reduce feed-in tariff (FIT) rates ahead of a planned review of tariff levels set for 2013. It notes the challenge facing the coalition government to reassure the energy and green sector about the fate of the FIT and the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI). It cites concerns raised by chief executives about premature adjustments to the tariff.
