Siemens: 'Green Pioneers' The Wind Turbine Challenge in schools:

The UK faces a significant engineering skills gap, with many thousands of engineers required, not only in core engineering sectors, but also the rapidly growing “green engineering” areas, such as wind energy. Siemens is heavily involved in the UK skills agenda and in promoting interest in the STEM subjects.

Generation 21 is the Siemens initiative to raise the profile of science and engineering among young people. By equipping young people with crucial knowledge and skills, they can pave the way to a better future. To this end, they operate a number of advancement programs and engage in partnerships with schools and universities to encourage students from the locality and under-represented groups to follow STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Maths) subjects.

You are more than welcome. The youth sector is an area of deep personal interest for me, and I came across a number of these in the same FT article. It seemed silly to not share them all!
