Cambridge is internationally recognised as a leading centre for CleanTech innovation.
New enterprises are being created which are finding solutions through the use of technology to reduce the consumption of energy. These innovations are key to the UK meeting its energy and carbon reduction targets and to securing a sustainable future for us all.
The sector is burgeoning in Cambridge with one of the more recent additions being the Future Business Centre which is a business incubation centre focused entirely on serving cleantech and social enterprise start-ups. The Centre is based near the Cambridge Science Park and offers its occupiers flexible working spaces with a full range of management services and an on-site business support programme.
With a Low Carbon centre next door and ease of access to Cambridge University academics, the Centre is ideal for cleantech businesses.
Cleantech covers a range of technologies and innovations which reduce energy use, such as smart metering and energy monitoring devices, building technologies such as innovative materials and insulation, lighting technologies, semi-conductors regulating the flow of electricity through devices, low carbon vehicles and renewable energy technologies.
