Following the launch of the Resilient Recovery Taskforce in September 2020, UK100 convened a series of workshops with local authority members and experts from the clean energy sector to share insights on local on-the-ground delivery and to identify priorities for action.

Rural communities are more receptive to renewable energy generation than their urban counterparts, according to research commissioned by the UK100’s Countryside Climate Network.

State of the Network Report

UK100
December 2020
For our State of the Network Report we look back at defining moments over the past five years with a short film featuring local leaders like Mayor Andy Burnham and Cllr Susan Aitken. We also have an accompanying mini report, and delve into our members' actions and ambitions on climate and clean air.
UK100 is seeking Government support for an enhanced CAF, including for London which has historically been excluded from the CAF, which would enable the delivery of CAZs across the UK and support a national fleet renewal programme to deliver WHO air quality standards.

May 2020
A high-level approach to the consideration, development and opportunity of Joint Ventures (JV) for public/private partnerships in energy projects. Developing a mutually beneficial relationship between the public and private sector working on energy-related projects is expected to become increasingly critical.
Air quality features prominently within the proposed legislation and many of the measures proposed are outlined out in the Government’s Clean Air Strategy 2019. Commitments are set out in the strategy to introduce an up to date legislative framework for tackling air pollution at the national and local level and also to strengthen local authority powers with respect to air quality.
