PlaceEXPO: Low Carbon UK: Dr Stephen Finnegan, Liverpool John Moores University

  1. 1. Dr Stephen Finnegan
  2. 2. What is the Low Carbon Innovation Hub? • The Low Carbon Innovation Hub is funded by the European Regional Development Fund therefore no initial investment is needed from the companies that we work with. • The project has the potential to bring significant economic benefits to the SMEs of Merseyside, supporting businesses to reduce emissions and develop low carbon technologies that will put the region at the forefront of new and expanding global markets. • LJMU has niche and unique strengths in low carbon technologies and has a key role to play in the implementation of the low carbon agenda across Merseyside.
  3. 3. Overview of three themes Renewable Energy • Resource Efficiency • Energy from Waste and Biomass • Sustainable Business Practices • Sustainability Agenda Low Carbon Technologies •Smart Building Technologies •Energy Management •Carbon Finance •Low Carbon Design and Planning Environmental Management and Clean Technologies • Environmental Monitoring • Air Pollution Control • Waste Management • Water/ Waste Treatment • Facility Management
