Electric Corby Leads the Way
The Electric Corby model is being highlighted at a national seminar as best practice tomorrow, (Wednesday 18th July), as part of the APSE Renewable V energy efficiency seminar.
The event is taking place at Coventry Transport Museum and will be based around both renewable energy and energy efficiency and what Council’s should be doing in their authority.
Electric Corby is an exciting project, established by Corby Borough Council, CENEX and Bela Partnership as a Community Interest Company set to attract world leaders in clean technology to Corby by becoming the UK’s practical, community scale test centre for energy efficient living and low carbon vehicles. Aiming to generate new employment opportunities with low carbon, low energy focus to match the high levels of population growth in the area, Electric Corby will help the town become one of the most environmentally and economically sustainable areas in the UK.
Nick Bolton the Project Manager of Electric Corby will be speaking to delegates about the project, the benefits of partnership working with Corby Borough Council, promoting electric vehicles and future projects.
Nick Bolton said:
‘Clean and green will play a big part in the future of Corby’s economy. With projects such as Zero Energy Bill Homes and Clean Technology Hubs that will benefit the community, Electric Corby’s fresh approach is already raising the profile and perception of the Borough as a first choice location for inward investment’
Corby Borough Council’s Lead Member for Environment, Cllr Peter McEwan, said:
‘We are very pleased that we have the chance to promote Electric Corby at the APSE Seminar and show the benefits of authorities adopting such a model. Corby is continuing to grow and develop and by becoming the leading place for sustainable technology will help our economy compliment this success.
‘Corby has a track record of delivery through partnership and the Borough Council is once again pushing forward in a delivery focused partnership with the private sector that will have a positive impact on the working and living environment in Corby
