Working towards a net-zero carbon future
Repowering the Black Country will establish a commercial environment where every business and investor can access the data and finance they need to identify and exploit clean economic opportunities locally and globally. Our Zero Carbon energy infrastructure will be fully-integrated into a national industrial decarbonisation strategy and we will work closely with our sister industrial clusters in Wales, Humberside, the North West and across the UK. The project is a partnership and seeks to work collaboratively with existing agencies and organisations as much as possible. We will complete master planning and establish the necessary data and financial infrastructure by 2023. The initial Zero Carbon hubs will be operational by 2030, and we aim to realise the complete vision before 2040.
