Local authorities and public sector bodies are increasingly recognising the strategic importance of local energy generation and heat networks. These can provide a number of benefits, including:

  • Creating new revenue streams
  • Addressing fuel poverty
  • Lowering energy costs
  • Cutting carbon

Local authorities are ideally placed to take a key role in the development of these schemes, but there are a number of barriers to implementation. This webinar, presented by Helen Andrews Tipper, Public Sector Manager and Ben Lynch, Technical Support Manager, covers:

  • How to identify opportunities for local energy generation and heat networks
  • The strategic importance of local authorities for influencing development through planning powers, providing anchor loads, and cheap access to finance
  • Getting a project off the ground: building internal business case, communicating with stakeholders, engaging with the market
  • An introduction to legal, technical and financial issues
  • Case studies of successful projects
