    How innovative is Europe?

    Eight out of ten jobs in the EU are created by small and medium-sized companies – but building them can be a challenge. Only 50% of start-ups survive the first five years.

    Although Europe includes five of the top ten most innovative countries in the world, as a region its innovation capabilities and overall competitiveness lag behind those of key competitor countries.

    Bristol Power Co-op's second share offer

    Bristol Power Co-op has now opened their second share offer. Here's what they have to say:

    'We've waited until we have homes ready for solar in south Bristol before promoting it. Now we have 10 homes ready to go, which will match what we did last year in Lockleaze. There are more in the pipeline, too, and we plan to do far better by putting free solar on 125 homes, which is why we are aiming for £500,000 with our share offer. '
