Low carbon opportunities identified in Leicester & Leicestershire

The Leicester and Leicestershire Enterprise Partnership (LLEP) in partnership with Leicester City Council and Leicestershire County Council have released the findings from consultations with local private and public-sector organisations into current energy opportunities and barriers.

The Energy Challenge Paper is produced by Element Energy and Cambridge Econometrics following their commission to develop and deliver the Energy Infrastructure Strategy and Implementation Plan for the Leicester and Leicestershire area.

The paper is based on extensive research into current energy use and future energy scenario modelling to identify opportunities and barriers to the growth of the sector as well as key priorities and projects.

It aims to encourage further engagement and raise awareness of the challenges and opportunities for the Leicester and Leicestershire energy system, and will inform the Energy Infrastructure Strategy and, in turn, the Local Industrial Strategy.
