The regional organisations in association with LEPs and with national support are critical to facilitating the delivery of the Clean Growth agenda as well delivering the Northern Powerhouse goals.

The regional clusters are the locations to deliver Carbon Capture, Storage and Utilisation facilities, regional Recycling Hubs and support the delivery of the Hydrogen Economy. The close vicinity of companies in clusters supports the establishment of regional Industrial Symbiosis programmes and creates an environment that allows SMEs to grow. With appropriate support, high-tech business parks could be created, and the resources marketed to offshore companies.
