The world's largest manufacturer of electric vehicles and lithium batteries could play a key role in a new £200m business park on the edge of Hull.
Chinese firm BYD has committed to making the proposed Yorkshire Energy Park its home, subject to the development earmarked on the site of the former Hedon aerodrome securing planing approval.
More than 1,000 new jobs could be created at the park, according to the consortium behind it.
If given the go-ahead, BYD will design and deliver battery storage to provide power for other new businesses based at the park.
The company also intends to collaborate with a new energy and digital technology college at the site through a student exchange programme with several higher education institutes in the Shenzhen region of China.
