First energy strategy for West Midlands launched

The first energy strategy for the West Midlands was launched last week to tackle climate change and promote energy efficiency. Just one per cent of electricity consumed in the region is generated from renewable sources and its energy use is estimated to emit around 42 million tonnes of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere every year. The blueprint, produced by the regional assembly, Advantage West Midlands and the Government Office for the West Midlands, covers housing, energy efficiency, renewable energy, supply security and transport. A regional energy champion will be appointed to provide a voice on energy issues and create a regional energy office. The strategy aims to establish the West Midlands as a leading supplier of low-carbon goods and services.
