The South 2 East local energy strategy has been developed to enable the Coast to Capital, Enterprise M3 and South East Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs) to achieve clean growth from now until 2050 in energy across the power, heat and transport sectors.
Clean growth and a sustainable economy
Clean growth is about growing our local economy - creating jobs and building sustainable income streams - while cutting greenhouse gases. Delivering clean growth is at the heart of the UK’s Industrial Strategy, whilst continuing to provide an affordable, sustainable and secure energy supply for businesses and consumers, which is key to what we want to achieve.
Ideally placed to benefit from a low carbon economy
As a group of three LEPs we cover a large part of the south east of England, an area that is ideally placed to harness the benefits that will come from the transition to a low carbon economy.
We are situated in one of the most productive regions of the UK:
we have significant capacity for renewable energy generation
extensive transport and utility infrastructure
a highly-skilled and diverse work force
supported by a network of capable public, private and research sector partners keen to pursue bolder and more sophisticated energy opportunities.
By working together on this Strategy, the three LEPs have been able to look at the common challenges and opportunities across the whole geography.
At the event . . .
At this event, you will have the opportunity to hear from Government, businesses, and Local Enterprise Partnerships as to how we are working towards a low carbon economy whilst delivering economic growth.
There will be examples of projects already happening in the area and the opportunity to hear how we intend take forward this important agenda.
Further details and full agenda to follow.
A light lunch will be provided at the event.
