Peterborough is an important centre for cleantech development in the United Kingdom offering a first-class working environment for eco-innovation and the environmental industries.
Home to around 350 environmental organisations, EnviroCluster Peterborough is a growing interactive network of businesses, entrepreneurs, investors, academic partners and researchers who are developing cleantech solutions. The cluster is strong in the fields of energy generation and energy efficiency, water supply and wastewater treatment, contaminated land remediation, biodiversity management, waste management and recycling and expert environmental consultancy. The sector is growing strongly in the city, with new companies emerging in areas such as smart-tech and low carbon vehicles.
EnviroCluster is supporting cleantech growth in the city by providing innovation and incubation support, promoting skills development, inward investment, sharing of knowledge and opportunities and helping our members internationalise into new global markets. We invite businesses to join the cluster if they are based locally, provide a cleantech solution, have a willingness to collaborate with others and have an ambition to grow.
EnviroCluster was established in 2002 with support from the East of England Development Agency. The project is managed by the UK Centre for Economic & Environmental Development (UK CEED) and from 2012, is funded by Peterborough City Council.
