The Chair of the Northern Energy Taskforce : "For at least 100 years, the north of England was the powerhouse of the country.

Even as King Coal’s reign came to an end, the north retained a significant slice of the nation’s generating capacity, mainly through wind and nuclear power. But of even greater significance is the north’s legacy of skills in engineering, distribution and manufacturing, a strong research base and unique geographical assets.
