The West Midlands Combined Authority (WMCA) has teamed up with Google to tackle the climate change emergency.
Google will be proving climate data for the region's three main cities – Birmingham, Coventry, and Wolverhampton - to show estimates of building and transportation carbon emissions and renewable energy potential.
Andy Street, the mayor of the West Midlands, said: 'This data being made available across our three cities by Google will make a substantial difference to our efforts and will help us target specific areas to achieve greater results.
'I am delighted to team up with Google in the fight against climate change and I also feel incredibly proud that they have chosen the West Midlands as one of the first locations for their Environmental Insight Explorer tool.'
The data will take the form of a free online tool known as the Environmental Insights Explorer (EIE). It will also be launched in Dublin, Copenhagen, and Manchester.
