Event Type: Workshop


an interactive debate about green finance and the roles to be played by both public organisations and private businesses.

This practical workshop will bring together ambitious leaders responsible for developing and implementing energy projects.

With a focus on how to make integrated local clean energy projects investor-ready, it will feature case studies of successful local energy projects, look at the role for private finance in bridging the needs of a public sector seeking to drive low carbon investment, and explore the range of financing options available and when they are most applicable.

After a networking lunch there is the opportunity to join knowledge-exchange surgeries tailored to the needs of delegates in the room. Participants will leave with a clear idea of the opportunities for further action, and a network of industry contacts to engage with.

North East, Yorkshire and Humber Energy Hub & UK:100

The North East, Yorkshire and Humber Energy Hub is a collaboration of Local Energy Partnerships (LEPs) who are working together to increase the number, quality and scale of local energy projects being delivered across the North East of England and in the UK.

UK100 and the North East, Yorkshire and Humber Energy Hub will record key insights and learning from the workshops. Insights which will be crucial in illustrating the needs, opportunities and blockers for local energy projects across England.

Wider Context

Every area of the UK has the potential to develop clean, local energy projects that deliver better homes, improved transport, high quality jobs, carbon reductions and long-term financial returns. Local authorities are key to making this happen. Yet many local energy projects are not reaching delivery, either because they are too small to meet investor criteria or there is lack of resource and technical expertise to deliver them.

This programme of work – starting with a national workshop held in Leeds in January 2019 – aims to better understand the current picture of the development and financing of local energy projects in England. This was organised by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, UK100 and Leeds Climate Commission, and recommended by the GFTF.

The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy has provided funding for a series of five regional workshops to cover each Local Energy Hub region in England. The aim of the workshops is to accelerate the development of a pipeline of investor-ready clean energy projects. The workshops will be tailored to the needs of each region and bring together local authorities, local energy partnerships, investors, developers and other critical stakeholders.

The five workshops are being organised by UK100 in partnership with each regional hub.
