The Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Combined Authority are helping to accelerate the delivery of clean local energy projects.
We are proud to be an active member of the Greater South East Energy Hub, one of five regional Energy Hubs in England.
Energy Hubs aim to provide local capacity support to bring investment into local, low-carbon energy infrastructure projects and make strategic links between local institutions.
The Greater South East Energy Hub works on behalf of Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs) and their member Local Authorities to support the development and financing of local energy projects.
There are 11 LEPs in the Greater South East and each LEP has produced a Local Energy Strategy that informs the work of the Energy Hub.
Working in collaborations with the Local Enterprise Partnerships, the core areas of work for the Energy Hub include:
- Identifying local energy projects in the region and any barriers to project development
- Increasing the number, quality and scale of local, low-carbon energy projects being delivered across the area
- Sharing information, assisting collaboration and expanding the scale of projects
- Raising local awareness of the opportunity for, and benefits of, local energy investment
- Enabling local areas to attract private and/or public finance
The Energy Hub team will work with stakeholders to develop a regional pipeline of priority projects. The team will also address common barriers to project development, to improve the conditions for local energy projects to be successful.
If you would like further information, or have project information to share, please get in touch with the Energy Hub.
The ENERGY HUB TEAM
The Energy Hub is governed by a regional Board with representation from each LEP and funded by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS).
