Ambitions for green economy
ENERGY: Politicians, business leaders and environmental groups in the Humber will debate how the Government's Energy Bill could affect the area's renewables ambitions.
An influential panel of speakers is to use an event in Hull to explain how the legislation may shape the potential of a new, green, economy in the region.
The Energising England: Building A Low-Carbon Economy On The Humber event takes place on Friday.
It is expected the critical issue of having a target in the Energy Bill to reduce carbon emissions from the power sector will be among those topics discussed.

The Bill is currently going through Parliament and will become law later this year.
Andy Atkins, Friends Of The Earth's executive director said: "The Energy Bill gives some clarity for developing renewables up to 2020.
"But for businesses looking to invest millions in the future development of the renewables industry, the Bill just doesn't give sufficient certainty over policy beyond 2020."
The Government is proposing to delay including the target in the legislation but some energy businesses, including Siemens, have warned this does not give the certainty they require to invest in the UK.
The session will be chaired by senior England campaigner for organiser Friends Of The Earth, Jane Thomas, and speakers include Alan Johnson, MP for Hull West and Hessle and Lord Haskins, chairman of the Humber LEP.
The event takes place at the Albemarle Music Centre, Ferensway, Hull, from 11.30am.
