4 Questions


What are the key areas of potential low carbon growth in the NELEP
area?


What low
-
carbon growth opportunities/challenges are there for SMEs
in the NELEP?


What support is required to enable SMEs to access these
opportunities?


What infrastructure is required to maximise the opportunities from
the low carbon economy?

Purpose of Today


Introduction


Define terms for the discussion of ‘Sustainable Growth’


Set the scene on EU Structural & Investment Funds


Review headline indicators of performance


Consider assets and opportunities



Discussion


What are the priorities for ‘Sustainable Growth’?


Where is support required


exploiting competitive advantage?


Where is support required


making the ‘sustainable’ transition?


How can SMEs be supported to address challenge and opportunity?

Approach & Structure


A complex set of inputs


Sector development


cleantech, low carbon, energy, etc


Sector transition & resilience


manufacturing, construction


Infrastructures


energy, transport, supply chains


Ecosystem services


environmental protection, adaptation, remediation



Key question

of ‘Sustainable Growth’


Restricted to ‘
Low Carbon’, ‘Climate Change’, ‘Resource Efficiency’, and
‘Sustainable Transport’

Focal Points


Competitive Advantage

16

Deeper Considerations


Maintaining competitiveness in key sectors (manufacturing,
engineering, construction, services):


Resource efficiency


Regulatory (or supply chain) compliance


New products, new markets


Avoiding the costs of climate change:


Cost of non
-
adaptation to the North East


£600m/year

(ClimateNE)


Updating critical ‘platforms’ in the North East economy:


Urban system:

>
Smart, distributed energy production

>
Energy performance of the built environment

>
Sustainable transport


Ecosystem services:

>
‘Provisioning’


products
obtained from ecosystems

>
‘Regulating’


benefits obtained from the regulation of ecosystem processes

>
‘Cultural’


benefits for people and place

17

For Discussion…


Develop a picture of priorities and potential, giving the ‘Sustainable
Growth’ theme structure…



What should be the priorities for the ‘Sustainable Growth’ theme?


Key opportunities


Key challenges


…and its relationship with ‘Smart’ and ‘Inclusive’ growth


18

For Discussion…in groups


(20mins)
What support interventions are required to:


Exploit
existing competitive advantage in Environmental, Low Carbon,
or Renewable Energy sectors?


Support existing sectors to make
the Low Carbon, Resource Efficient,
Pro
-
Environmental transition
?


Enable the NE to mitigate or adapt to Climate Change, Resource
Depletion, and Environmental Damage?



(20mins)
How should SME support interventions be focussed?


Target sectors?


Manner of engagement?


Nature of support?


Challenges facing support interventions?
