A network of local authorities working together to create the road map

to achieve

net ZERO carbon




​Members benefit from being part of a network of local authorities whose aim is :

  • Promote and share best practice

  • Expertise in scaling-up processes

  • Standardisation

  • Shared knowledge and collaboration

  • Governance models

  • Funding approaches

  • Place Based approach

See prospectus for full details

To create a 'ROAD MAP' that all authorities can follow 

to achieve their net ZERO carbon or similar ambitions.

There is no one single solution that will achieve net ZERO carbon. Authorities will need to consider a series of measures based on their asset base, available technology and a vision of municipalisation of energy where income from carbon saving and renewable energy projects can be invested into future energy projects.

A core group of local authorities is working together to plan net ZERO carbon.


This approach mirrors many examples already existing within European Cities.


All local authorities are invited to join for FREE and work together to achieve their carbon targets.

A structured membership offering and services will be available in due course.

Road Map to ZERO Carbon

Stage 1 
Diagnostic Assessment

PART 1 : Baseline Analysis - Where are we?

PART 2 : CO2 Gap Analysis - How much carbon do we need to save?

PART 3 : Delivery Options - How do we get there ?

Business Case Delivery Options
Stage 2 
Instead of having a strategy that represents an idealistic set of objectives, Stage 2 is focused on defining the business case behind each of the technologies and projects defined in Stage 1.

An opportunity then exists to create a municipal energy vehicle (such as an ESCO) whereby an authority can generate revenue from energy projects, which can then be re-distribute into new energy or community projects.

Stage 3
Delivering the Energy Projects
Stage 3 is to deliver the energy projects to achieve the identified carbon savings via the private sector, or alternatively could utilise centre of excellence skills within existing local authorities. 
This network will promote public sector delivery models which may include ESCO formation, retrofitting of residential properties, delivery of district heating, air/ground pump projects as examples.

SUPPORT : Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme (PSDS)

Prior to the release of the second tranche of PSDS funding, we can offer local authorities support with their PSDS applications, including the Low Carbon Skills Funding applications as follows  :


  • 1:1 FREE SURGERIES on ZOOM/TEAMS - where we will walk you through the key qualifications and process to make your applications.


  • BUILDING ASSESSMENT REPORTS - these provide a COVID secure cost effective desktop report that assesses each building for  :

            - energy and carbon reductions plus decarbonisation of heat                              opportunities to meet PSDS categories 1, then 2, 3 and 4

            - viability of renewable energy technologies with 20 year                                      financial modelling and a grid constraints connection assessment

To book an appointment for your 1 : 1 free surgery, please initially contact Marc Wynn on marc@assetutilities.com


Please download our brochure for more details on the building assessment. Sample reports are available on request

It's FREE to Join ZERO Carbon Places

The network will operate on two levels.

Level 1 Membership is FREE for every local authority to join who will benefit from carbon reduction ideas and strategies, newsletters, latest developments in technologies, thoughts and ideas to develop

the net ZERO carbon road map.


Workshops will be organised with a nominal fee charged to cover the overhead of the event.

Level 2 Membership will include a greater set of services, events, workshops, networking opportunities, knowledge portal, online resources and tool kit to support each local authority. This will be launched in due course.

Facilitators - Asset Utilities Ltd and Municipia are the facilitators for the group, organising all events, communications and resources.
