The newly-completed Gateshead District Energy Centre is the first of its kind and scale in the North East and will generate and supply low-carbon, low cost energy for up to 350 local homes and businesses in the area. On a tour of the new centre Minister for Industry and Energy, Jesse Norman said: This investment in local energy supplies is intended to deliver low carbon energy at competitive prices for local customers.
