Cornwall Spaceport Leads in a Bid to Create a Green Economy in the UK18th Nov 2021
Climate change is an issue that the Cornwall Spaceport is determined to tackle. They have visions of setting up offshore floating wind turbines, geothermal energy, and biofuel. The potential to decarbonise the economy is enormous.
This is according to the Chairman of the Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Local Enterprise Partnership, Mark Duddridge. The partnership recently outlined how it plans to champion local and global goals of creating a low-carbon economy.
The Local Enterprise Partnership came up with a film dubbed “How Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly is leading the green industrial revolution”. They even have a prospectus detailing how a low-carbon economy benefits society and the environment.
Cornwall Spaceport is the Ideal location
Mark was adamant that there’s a huge opportunity to net-zero that no one can overstate. The Cornwall Spaceport location is perfect, plus the area is geologically wealthy with plenty of natural resources.
These resources are the answer when it comes to powering a green economy. Some areas even have plenty of green opportunities coming together at once.
The Future is Green for the UK Economy
In the future, the possibility of producing lithium to power electric cars in the UK will be high. The same applies to battery storage enterprises in the country. Not to mention the potential of such enterprises to get power from offshore wind turbines. The results would be many job opportunities for the local area and country.
This puts the local area at the beginning of yet another industrial revolution. The area can export the skills and knowledge to other parts of the UK and the world. There is enough detailing on these opportunities presented to the Government in the prospectus. The focus is on the natural resources around the Cornwall Spaceport and Isles that will play a crucial role in the green economy building.
