Lancashire Sustainable Energy Study (2010/11)

In 2010, the North West Regional Development Agency developed the North West Renewable and Low Carbon Energy Capacity and Deployment Study.  Lancashire County Council then commissioned consultants to bring forward the information contained in this report to a local authority level.

The study comprises several documents, including a technical report (April 2011) and a final report (July 2011).  It provides a greater understanding of the potential for renewable energy development in West Lancashire.
