New toolkit to help SMEs benefit from green economy

The Institute for Sustainability has launched a free toolkit, which details the opportunities arising from the growing onshore renewable energy and related low carbon markets, to help built environment SMEs.

The Renewable Energy Toolkit aims to help businesses increase their understanding of the markets so they can supply and deliver onshore renewable energy technologies and related services.

The toolkit is also designed to help potential investors and procurers understand the relevance and viability of individual technologies, how they might be used, and what government support and incentives are available, encouraging the move towards a sustainable low carbon future.

The Institute for Sustainability chief executive Ian Short said: “Renewable energy will play a major role in helping the UK to fulfil its carbon reduction commitments, whilst at the same time addressing energy security in a world where current resources are becoming increasingly constrained.
“With renewable energy production expected to double by 2020 in the UK, investment in solar, wind, biomass, hydropower and heat pumps in particular presents large emerging markets for both suppliers and installers. This means significant opportunities for SMEs in the built environment sector.”
