The 2013 Sustainable Energy Report

This report was commissioned when DETI and MATRIX identified substantial commercial opportunities associated with sustainable energy technology markets which were likely to grow significantly as worldwide demand for lower-carbon technologies increased.

The panel built on the existing base of intelligence and extrapolated forward to identify attractive global market opportunities that could be realised by exploiting Northern Ireland’s science, research and technology capabilities.

The report sets out a vision that within 10 years Northern Ireland could be an internationally recognised exporter of global solutions, forged from the development of the lowest cost sustainable energy infrastructure in Europe, created by thriving, indigenous businesses and exploiting the regions natural, intellectual and entrepreneurial capital.
