Cheap electricity customers could soon receive their power from the UK's first sustainable energy park after its developer closed a deal with an overseas manufacturer.
The Peterborough Telegraph reports that work will start on the energy park in the New Year following Peterborough Renewable Energy's partnership with Malaysian company KNM Group Berhad.
Green Energy Park (GEP) - the parent company of the Peterborough subsidiary - announced the deal earlier this week, and GEP managing director Chris Williams commented: "In KNM Group Berhad we have found a partner who shares our ethos, drive and ambition to deliver a landfill-free future.
"We are delighted to be signing this deal which will see our vision become reality in our first energy park for Peterborough."
The new site will derive cheap energy from waste and will recycle and manufacture by-products to produce materials such as glass, building blocks and metals for other companies, including KNM, the newspaper reports.
