A network of local authorities working together to create the road map
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
Shared knowledge and collaboration
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
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
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.
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.
CLIMATE EMERGENCY : Services to Support Your Ambitions
This is the most comprehensive structure available that allows you to :
BUILDING A LOCAL PROGRAMME OF ACTION
BUILDING A ROAD MAP TO NET ZERO CARBON
As local authorities design their local strategies and Climate Change Action Plans for delivering net zero carbon, they will need to put in place the building blocks which can support their wider ambitions.
This document explains the building blocks and the support services available from ZERO Carbon Places. The building blocks include :
01 GOVERNANCE AND ENERGY DEMOCRACY
03 ENERGY SYSTEM
04 STANDARDS AND REGULATION
05 PROGRAMME PRIORITIES
