In 2016 and 2017 the Smart Specialisation Hub published its MEIA and DAIA reports to offer a simple overview of evidenced innovation activity by sector for each LEP and across the devolved administrations. They were designed to identify a gap in existing analysis that were either top level and offering no regional breakdown, or regionally specific and, therefore, not comparable. When prompted for feedback, stakeholders requested more granular sector data to gain a deeper understanding of regional innovation capabilities. Although there are still challenges with the availability of sectorally and regionally specific data, this report has been produced to offer a deeper dive into innovation activity in the UK’s renewable energy sector. The accompanying data is available here.
