Glasgow is at the forefront of low-carbon developments, with leading industry and academic organisations, as it seeks to re-invent itself in line with its vision to be one of the most sustainable cities in Europe.

It offers a culture of innovation to renewable energy companies and is now leading the way in developing alternative energy resources.

The University of Strathclyde is building the pioneering £89m Technology and Innovation Centre in the City Centre. The Technology and Innovation Centre, part of Scottish Enterprise’s new International Technology and Renewable Energy Zone (ITREZ), will create 700 new research jobs and support 850 existing jobs. It will revolutionise the way researchers in academia and industry collaborate and innovate together.  The UK’s Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult is based here too.

The Low Carbon Industries work stream focused its work round how to grow the Low Carbon Industries in Glasgow (and the Clyde Valley) and how to make Glasgow a more business-friendly investment location noting opportunities around communications; skills development particularly focusing on engineering.
