1st deployment of the world’s largest wind turbines
More than £4 billion offshore wind investment in five years
Opportunities in wave and tidal energy in the Mersey Estuary
Hydrogen and carbon capture innovation projects
Liverpool City Region is a designated Centre for Offshore Renewable Engineering and has the world’s second largest concentration of offshore wind farms. The first commercial deployment of the world’s largest wind turbines and new investment in Operations and Maintenance facilities is set to boost our offshore wind supply-chain opportunities for years to come. Companies such as Ørsted, RWE, SWM, Iberdrola, PKA and Lego Group have invested £4.3 billion in offshore wind here in the last five years.
The Mersey Estuary has one of the largest tidal ranges in Europe. Local private and public sector stakeholders are committed to develop a flagship scheme in Europe for renewable energy.
Liverpool City Region is at the centre of the recently announced HyNet North West project – a major hydrogen energy and carbon capture, usage and storage project.
We’ve got some serious credentials and capabilities when it comes to the generation of energy from food and animal waste. The region has been a leading player in initiatives such as the generation of power from biogas coming from organic waste and the recycling of chip fat from fast-food restaurants into biofuel for lorries.
Local authorities across the city region are engaged in a retrofitting programme. Social rented housing offers huge opportunities to improve its energy efficiency and there are similar levels of retrofit opportunities to commercial and industrial building stock, centred on insulation, lighting.
