North East Derbyshire District Council will be commencing work on a strategy to build a clean energy future for Clay Cross.
The delivery of a Low Carbon Energy Network Strategy is a project within the Town Investment Plan for Clay Cross.
It means, following a review of needs and opportunities of businesses and residents, it will provide a guide on how to reduce the towns carbon footprint and maximise the opportunities of utilising green energy.
The strategy will enable the town to attract new energy sector businesses, support a wider programme of development opportunities, and give a clear vision for how Clay Cross can become more energy efficient and reduce carbon emissions over the next 10 years.
North East Derbyshire District Councillor and Clay Cross Town Board member, Cllr Jeremy Kenyon said, “With the global energy and climate crisis there has never been a more important time for us to take action on reducing energy usage and providing clean, green energy to our residents and businesses of Clay Cross whilst also providing investment and potential employment opportunities for the town.
