Zero Carbon Futures has recently been set up as a new company by Gateshead College, to deliver a range of local and national programmes, all geared up to advance the region as a European leader in the production of low carbon vehicles.
This follows the College's successful £6.2m Regional Growth Fund bid to create 5,000 jobs over the next decade, including 1,500 apprenticeships in the low carbon vehicle sector.
Through the previous work led by One North East, the region is recognised as a UK leader in the emerging green vehicle sector. With the closure of the regional development agency Zero Carbon Futures will take over some of the responsibility for driving the North East's low carbon vehicle agenda working in partnership with the new Local Enterprise Partnerships and a range of local stakeholders.
Part of the company's remit is to oversee the conversion of the former Nissan test track adjacent to SASMI, into the North of England's first Performance Track. The creation of this track is the last element in a comprehensive offering in the region for the low carbon vehicle sector. North East England is home to the Nissan LEAF production facility and battery assembly plant. Gateshead College provides training and learning in all key areas of the sector and the region is a leader in the Government's Plugged in Places programme of installing public access electric vehicle (EV) charging posts.
The company also acts as an advisory and consultancy body on all low carbon vehicle issues and on sustainable manufacturing techniques.
