Energy Innovation Zone in the Black Country
Energy Innovation Zones have been designated across the West Midlands to provide commercially meaningful geographic areas for deploying integrated smart energy solutions.
Four Energy Innovation Zones are planned for the West Midlands, including sites at Tyseley, UK Central in Solihull, Coventry and Warwickshire and in the Black Country.
The Black Country Enterprise Zones comprise a portfolio of sites in Dudley, Wolverhampton and Darlaston. The focus of these zones is to promote and attract advanced manufacturing in the Black Country – by offering competitive advantage to manufacturers who locate there – especially targeting aerospace, automotive and high added value engineering.
