Low Carbon

Liverpool City Region’s coastal location and low carbon and energy business capabilities mean it is in a strong position to capture and realise the job growth potential from a low carbon economy.




Core Locations


People Employed

The Low Carbon sector contributes over £2bn to the City Region’s economy employing over 22,000 people in 1,400 companies.

The decision by Government to designate the City Region as a Centre for Offshore Renewable Engineering (CORE Status) is recognition of our continued potential in the low carbon and renewable sector. Growth is being stimulated through the £3.5bn being invested in Liverpool Bay, the exploitation of commercial opportunities in Low Carbon environmental goods and services, energy and heat networks and the imperative for a modal shift in transport.

These opportunities are being realised through initiatives such as the Sustainable Energy Action Plan (SEAP), driven forward by both the public and private sectors to create many thousands of jobs for many years to come.
