Low Carbon

Bristol & Bath is a hub of both the UK’s ‘nuclear renaissance’ and disruptive and low carbon energy generation and supply. The region contains exemplar waste-to-energy and biomass projects from GENeco, Viridor and Suez Environnement’s Severnside plant, alongside investment in biogas and electric buses and infrastructure; First Group will have half its fleet as low emission or carbon by 2020, the largest concentration of low carbon buses Euro VI in the UK1.

A combination of nuclear new build, nuclear generation, nuclear decommissioning, defence and academic research makes the South West the focal point of the rebirth of nuclear capability in the UK.
