Clean Energy Prospectus

HOW THE GREAT SOUTH WEST IS POWERING A CLEANER, GREENER, BRITAIN

The Great South West Clean Energy Prospectus reveals how the region is set to become one of the leading providers of low carbon energy in the UK by 2035.

With Hinkley Nuclear Power Station, floating offshore renewables, and an array of geothermal, hydrogen and other green fuels, the Great South West - covering Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, Devon, Dorset and Somerset - is set to be at the forefront of Britain’s ambitions to become net zero by 2050.

The prospectus reveals how the Great South West’s diversity of low carbon energy capacity is unmatched anywhere in the UK. It includes Floating Offshore Wind in the Celtic Sea, a new nuclear power station, Hinkley Point C in Somerset, geothermal and heating solutions including the UK’s only operating geothermal plant at Eden Project, numerous hydrogen and green fuel production facilities, and diverse low carbon solutions including wave and tidal, onshore wind and solar, utility-scale heat and interconnectors across all four counties.
