Green energy project could bring 10 jobs


Up to ten jobs could be created through a project which aims to use green energy to set up a supply chain to establish an energy hub.

Coleraine Borough Council has been awarded over £70,000 from the European Sustainable Competitiveness Programme for the project called ‘Smart Grid’.

An additional £24,000 will be funded by Council.

The project will recruit around 40 local businesses to provide green energy that could be become part of a supply chain for a localised power grid.

Explaining more about the project, Maura Mann, Head of Development Services told last Tuesday night’s council meeting that the project was part of a ‘scoping exercise’ which would look at all types of renewable energy.
