Protos clusters together innovative technologies in energy generation and resource management that are leading the way on the clean growth agenda. As we move towards net zero carbon emissions, Protos can help businesses meet their sustainability objectives and develop a blueprint for the rest of the UK.
The area around Protos is at the forefront of UK manufacturing and home to a concentration of energy intensive users. Our aim is to deliver low-carbon energy directly to industrial and domestic customers through a local energy grid which could see costs substantially reduced and save thousands of tonnes of carbon emissions.
Decarbonising industry will not only help the UK meet our zero carbon goals, it will help to protect and grow the high value manufacturing jobs that have made this region thrive.
Ged Barlow, Chair of the Cheshire Energy Hub: “Sitting at the heart of Cheshire’s Energy Innovation District, Protos is leading the way in innovative solutions to deliver clean growth.”
