How can local authorities engage work with partners to develop a pipeline of investable projects in their area? How can investors make best use of the enormous opportunities that exist? Where and how will local authorities access the advice and support they need?
Throughout 2019, we will be holding workshops across the country to bring together local councils, developers and investors, energy generators, regulators and operators to answer these questions, understand local practice, the barriers to investment and how they can be overcome. We will be announcing locations and dates soon. If you’re interested to take part please email firstname.lastname@example.org
This programme – supported by BEIS, and run by UK100 and the Leeds Climate Commission – aims to accelerate the development of a pipeline of investor-ready clean energy projects. Local authority frontrunners have generated ideas, developed business models and secured finance for innovative low-carbon projects around the UK. They show that it can be done, and there’s much to learn from them. We have gathered their experiences here.
