One area of focus is growing its exports to the power generation sector, in particular concentrated solar power. This market is currently predominantly supplied by Spanish and Chinese companies given their geography and weather conditions.

MICC exemplifies the innovation, cutting edge technology and skill of companies in the North-East of England. We are pleased to support MICC with the funding and international expertise it needs to achieve its aspiration of growing the volume and breadth of its overseas exports.
