What are the new topic areas for the Green Steves?
This Autumn and moving into the Spring of next year, the Green Steves papers are going to take a different route. Having covered a wide range of climate change and energy issues in the preceding publications, this time we are going to take a deeper dive into relevant renewable energy
This series of papers from the Green Steve’s is to discuss key elements of the green agenda in the context of local government and to highlight opportunities for action. In that context, the subject of hydrogen might be seen as marginal. That might be the case, but this is not a view shared by every Council –

Local authorities continue to strive towards their net zero targets, but there can be no doubt that progress is stronger in some areas than others.
