Small and medium-sized businesses in the energy sector are seen as having a vital role to play in helping the UK triple its low-carbon exports. A report written by the Carbon Trust and commissioned by Shell Springboard has looked at the growth of over 180 low-carbon SMEs and found they are far more likely to export than SMEs in other sectors.

To help achieve future growth potential, the report identifies major opportunities in four promising markets it calls 'the MUSTS' - Mexico, the UAE, South Africa and Turkey. All are seen as having a favourable business environment, including a strong demand for low carbon goods and services.

"The UK has a must-win opportunity to ensure our vibrant low-carbon sector grows rapidly and continues its exciting export success story," says Carbon Trust Chief Executive Tom Delay. "Grabbing this golden opportunity with both hands will help the UK's economic recovery by delivering new jobs, generating growth and by expanding UK exports."
