I am meeting a client in a week’s time who is interested in funding a green energy development project to construct a wind farm in Kent. When I meet with her, I should like to have a preliminary feasibility study of such an enterprise, which I hope will interest her enough to fund a full study. Could I ask you to prepare a feasibility report, and also a short PowerPoint presentation for me to take to the meeting?
I am sorry that this is short notice, but if we can manage to interest her, I am assured that we will be engaged as consulting engineers on the project.
In this section you need to analyse all the data you have taken in the experiments.

This paper concludes that there is a statistically significant and positive effect of high technology industry on regional economic growth. Additionally, the author reports that the regional economic structure varies by the size and the economic activities within the region.
Thus, it is recommended that rather than simply supporting any high-technology industry the aim should be to support the specific high technology industry, which could result in the subsequent regional economic growth.
