The Spatial Energy Plan for Greater Manchester Combined Authority project was commissioned as part of the Energy Technologies Institute (ETI) Smart Systems and Heat Programme and undertaken through collaboration between the Greater Manchester Combined Authority and the Energy Systems Catapult. The study has consolidated the significant data and existing evidence relating to the local energy system to provide a platform for future energy planning in the region and the development of suitable policies within the emerging spatial planning framework for Greater Manchester.
This document describes the policy, economic and commercial perspective of the creation of a Local Section 2 includes evaluation of the socio-economic costs and benefits from the implementation of the 2040 and 2050 Carbon Target scenarios in Bury. These include direct benefits such as:
Reductions in energy consumption and carbon emissions, and
Wider benefits such as improvements in health and increased employment.
Possible future policies which might facilitate the implementation of the strategy are then considered.
