Responding to news that Glasgow-based small wind turbine manufacturer Gaia-Wind has gone into provisional liquidation;
Jenny Hogan, Deputy Chief Executive of Scottish Renewables, said: "This disappointing news reflects clearly the state of this sector in the UK. "Small wind turbine manufacturers like Gaia-Wind have suffered from both cuts to support provided by the UK Government and, more acutely, a lack of direction for the policies which should sustain a viable market for their products. "While Gaia had sought export markets, these too have been affected by similar issues. "This announcement comes as a blow to Scottish manufacturing and another reminder that cuts to and inaction on the Feed-in Tariff made at Westminster have very real effects for the people who work in the renewable energy industry and its supply chain."
