Report says energy offers economic opportunity for Northern England


 

The North could be at the forefront of new developments and innovation in the energy sector for decades to come, a report prepared by KPMG has said. Commissioned by Northern Gas Networks (NGN), the report said that the region served as the “natural point of contact” between the UK and North West Europe, and a point of import and export of resources and products through its interconnectors and ports. The report called for the development of regional strategies for key initiatives, including the cost-effective exploration of shale gas, the exploitation of carbon capture and storage potential, and the development of “whole energy solutions” covering gas, electricity, heat and transport.
