Repowering the Black Country

Repowering the Black Country is a programme of initiatives supporting Black Country businesses to take advantage of global clean growth opportunities and to make the transition to a net zero industrial future. The project will initially develop four zero carbon industrial hubs in the Black Country. Within the next 10 years, we aim to reduce industrial carbon emissions by around 1.3M tCO2.

Repowering the Black Country is one of seven industrial cluster decarbonisation projects funded by BEIS and UKRI. The Black Country Industrial Cluster consists of more than 3000 energy-intense manufacturing businesses. Our project is supporting the national industrial decarbonisation strategy by developing approaches which work in the Black Country and can then be applied more widely.

The project is about providing cost-efficient energy infrastructure across the Black Country; helping companies benefit from new supply chain opportunities in the circular economy; and supporting resource efficiency initiatives in manufacturing operations.
