Low Carbon Economy for the West Midlands – local authority profiles

Date of the reports

May 2010 – February 2011.

Author of the reports

West Midlands Regional Observatory

Purpose of the reports

To provide a summary analysis of the opportunities presented by the transition to a low carbon economy for each of the Tier 1 local authority geographical areas in the West Midlands, and the risks presented by rising fuel prices and carbon legislation, based on the current industrial profile of each area. SWM commissioned the West Midlands Regional Observatory to extend the intial work in May 2010 for the urban local authorities for the City Region, to cover all unitary and county local authorities within the West Midlands.

What SWM liked

We liked that these reports present a concise analysis of the issues facing local economies in the West Midlands in terms of both opportunities and risks at a disaggregated level providing local specificity, whilst also using a consistent methodology which means that the reports can be used as “building blocks” for a sub-regional analysis.  The reports will be used to help develop the Local Authority Low Carbon Economy Programme.
