UK100 is a highly ambitious network of local government leaders, which seeks to devise and implement plans for the transition to clean energy that are ambitious, cost effective and take the public and business with them.
It supports decision-makers in UK towns, cities and rural areas in their transition to 100% clean energy by 2050. It is the only network for UK local authorities focused solely on climate and clean energy policy.
80 local leaders have already committed to 100% clean energy and more are signing up. The shift to clean energy is happening, here in the UK. Make sure your community is part of it.
The leaders made the commitment as part of the momentum around the Paris Agreement in 2015, reflecting the leadership shown by mayors globally on climate change and clean energy. Turning those commitments into reality is the goal of the network.
UK100 connects local leaders to each other, to business and to national government, enabling them to showcase their achievements and learn from each other. It enables them to speak collectively on how to accelerate the transition to clean energy locally and nationally.
“The transition to 100% clean energy is an economic and environmental imperative. Cities and local leaders are key to ensuring this shift happens in a way that meets the science and the needs and ambitions of the citizens and businesses of the UK. UK100 is leading the way in committing to make the clean energy transition a reality and I commend them for all their remarkable work.”

“We are taking action to show a completely clean energy future is both viable and within reach within the course of a generation.”
– Sir Richard Leese, Manchester City Council0
