Greater Manchester's green technology and services sector

Green Economy has published its new study of Greater Manchester’s green technologies and services sector finding that it could be worth £67.5m to the local economy, if investment is made into diversifying firms to renewable energy markets including biomass, wind and geothermal.  

It analyses the Green Technologies and Services sector which comprises the Low Carbon and Environmental Goods and Services Sector, as well as emerging technologies and services including hydrogen, district heating and climate adaption. This is the second study of the city-regions sector, following the last publication in 2018
