The Combined Authority is establishing a £9m Green New Deal Fund and we are inviting proposals to manage our fund.

Closed: Green New Deal Fund

The Combined Authority recognises the scale of the challenge to reduce carbon emissions but also the opportunity that the shift to a green economy presents for the North of Tyne area.

The Combined Authority is establishing a £9m Green New Deal Fund which can deliver significant carbon reductions as well as supporting new industry and jobs in areas where emissions reductions are most needed.

We are inviting proposals from a delivery organisation, or partnership of organisations to manage our Green New Deal Fund.  The Fund will stimulate innovation and business growth in areas such as heat decarbonisation, energy efficiency, renewables, energy systems, low carbon transport and nature-based solutions.

This call is now closed.

It would be hugely symbolic if we committed ourselves totally to renewable and sustainable energy sources in the future. That would be real leadership on climate change.
