Low carbon Leeds
Join the Centre for Low Carbon Futures (CLCF) on 9 January at the launch of groundbreaking research on the potential for a truly commercially viable, energy efficient, low carbon Leeds City Region.
Leeds City Region currently has an energy bill in excess of £5bn a year - or 10% of its GDP - and this is increasing every year. Are there cost effective ways of cutting this energy bill whilst also enhancing competitiveness and creating employment? If so, where are the most cost and carbon effective options, how much do they cost and how quickly would they pay back? Is the business case strong enough to attract major investments? And if we made these investments by how much could we cut Leeds City Region carbon emissions?
The research, led by Professor Andy Gouldson, evaluates the cost and carbon effectiveness of thousands of energy efficient, low carbon options for the commercial, industrial, transport and domestic sectors. It generates league tables of the different measures that could be applied in different sectors, and it assesses the overall business case for investment in energy efficiency and carbon reduction.
The launch will take place:
