Renewable Energy Study

Worcestershire County Council commissioned consultants IT Power to undertake a study, providing calculations of potential levels of wind, biomass and hydro resources. The study also maps potential broad locations for each technology and suggests a County-level target for energy that could be harnessed from renewable sources. It should be noted that the study remains technical evidence, and the County Council has not endorsed either the levels or the locations of renewable energy development in Worcestershire. Further information on renewable energy can be found on the Worcestershire County Council website.
