Energy and Clean Growth – Supply Chain Mapping project

The low carbon economy is predicted to grow four times faster than the rest of the economy. The Energy and Clean Growth – Supply Chain Mapping project seeks to provide a SELEP wide assessment of opportunities within the emerging local energy and clean growth sector.

The project will undertake an in-depth analysis of the supply chain for the local energy and clean growth sector and will refresh and build upon the now out of date analysis of the Low Carbon Environmental Goods and Services sector that was undertaken in 2012.

Through the analysis identified, companies will inform on key barriers and challenges that are currently restricting growth in key opportunity areas, such as offshore renewables and nuclear. This will enable a Customer Relationship Management system to be created that will then be used to develop a targeted Clean Growth Support Programme. Sector-based interventions will be prioritised and selected from the Clean Growth Support Programme and will be piloted as part of the project.

The project will, through the analysis and creation of the Customer Relationship Management system, provide a SELEP wide assessment of opportunities within this emerging sector.

The project aims to unlock one of the biggest barriers and bottlenecks to skills training and jobs growth, which is currently stifling productivity and growth locally.


Sector Support Fund

The Sector Support Fund (SSF) was established to support one-off, discrete pieces of work of a pan-LEP nature with a sector focus that bring demonstrable benefit and which have support across the LEP area.

The SSF used Growing Places Fund (GPF) Revenue grant to fund a programme of works which supported the sector focussed activities being undertaken on a pan-LEP basis and which were predominantly led by the SELEP working groups.

Funding value: £129,500
Total Project cost: £185,000
