Having led the industrial revolution, Greater Manchester (GM) is now leading the green revolution. The city declared a climate emergency in 2019 and has committed to becoming zero-carbon by 2038. As part of this effort the Energy Innovation Agency (EIA) brings together partners from local government, business, industry and the academic sectors, including citizen representatives to meet this challenge.
The Energy Innovation Agency is a collaboration between Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA), The Growth Company, Hitachi Europe, Bruntwood, SSE Enterprise, The University of Manchester, Manchester Metropolitan University and the University of Salford.
This unique partnership will accelerate the introduction of energy related innovation, bringing together the region’s exceptional academic and government assets with the entrepreneurship and investment of industry to both shorten the journey from discovery to deployment and to facilitate the rapid scaling of energy innovations.
