Norwich aims to be low-carbon leader

Norwich aims to be low-carbon leader
The aim to turn Norwich into a global low-carbon leader has been outlined by the East of England Development Agency (Eeda).

Its regional economic strategy (Res) calls for the city's renewable energy industry to be promoted and supported.

The document published this week names the promotion of combined heat and power, wind solar and biomass technologies among the strategic ambitions.

It suggests using globally renowned "anchor companies and research institutes" in the environmental arena to help develop clusters at Norwich Research Park and Hethel.

The University of East Anglia's environmental research also features in the plans for the city, which it is claimed will grow to have a population of 280,000 by 2025.

The Res also cites climate change concerns for the whole region, noting that "our low-lying geography, vulnerable coastline and already scarce water resources make us the region most at threat from climate change and degradation of ecosystems" in the UK.
