With increasing pressure to meet carbon emission reduction targets, countries around the world are turning to renewable energy as a sustainable alternative. Within the UK, increasing investment in new renewable technologies and innovations is creating unprecedented growth within the low-carbon economy, a sector which currently employs 432,000 people, with a turnover of more than £77bn.

This growth is creating the perfect opportunity for UK SMEs to maximise their share of Renewable Energy sales, which are set to grow by 60% over the next five years.

The Local Growth Hub, in association with Brabners Renewable Energy Team and LCR Future Energy, is inviting businesses from across the Liverpool City Region to join them to discuss the national and global potential of this rapidly growing sector and giving an insight into how businesses can access these markets.

Attendees will also find out how to unlock the support available through LCR Future Energy programme, the new £3.7m initiative, funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), to help SMEs across the across the Liverpool.

Join us on Thursday 29th June 8am- 9.30am
