Low Carbon

 
Low Carbon  

Employment in the low carbon economy in D2N2 is thought to be amongst the highest of all LEP areas. The D2N2 area importantly also has significant research expertise in this area. It plans to use our competitive advantage to build on expertise in the low carbon transport technologies and dual fuels sector, including Toyota and Rolls Royce.

The significance of climate change and the low carbon economy is also likely to present commercial opportunities for the entire D2N2 business base either through the development and provision of low carbon goods and services, including low carbon housing and retrofit or through savings in areas such as energy or waste reduction, providing a market for local low carbon economy businesses.
