  • Gyron report shows Greater Manchester’s low carbon sector is powering economic growth

    17th April 2018

    A recently published report researched and written by Gyron and kMatrix for GC Business Growth Hub, clearly positions Greater Manchester’s low carbon sector within the global, national and regional market.

    The report reveals that the City Region’s low carbon sector is placed second only to London and the South East, growing faster than the national average and is larger than the local manufacturing and digital sectors combined. Greater Manchester also compares favourably with other international cities in terms of low carbon sector sales and the sector is leading the North West’s export drive, delivering over 40% of its exports in 2015/16 (more than £750m).

    The publishing of the report is well-timed because the findings support Greater Manchester’s recent Green Summit, at which Mayor Andy Burnham announced local ambitions to achieve carbon neutrality by 2040 and to become a “Green City Region”.

    Gyron and kMatrix are currently finalising the first measures for the emerging district heat network, smart grids & demand response and hydrogen sub-sectors which will shortly be piloted by a City Region and will help to expand the UK’s understanding of how the low carbon sector is developing at pace. This research will also explore market opportunities for these sub-sectors and quantify the benefits to the whole economy.
