​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.

The RACE TO ZERO has started.

Time is running out and with less than 10 years to go to reach climate declaration commitments, we felt a defined focus and direction was required. 


We therefore started the Local Authority RACE TO ZERO. 


This is for those authorities who are serious about reducing their carbon emissions, wish to be part of a focused group that shares ideas and their successes. These authorities will also benefits from all the positive publicity that we will be organising.

We are supporting all our member authorities with workable solutions with free webinars and training to :  


  • measure their carbon baselines

  • reduce the carbon emissions 

  • measure the carbon reductions monthly

All local authorities are invited to join ZERO Carbon Places for FREE and then be part of the RACE TO ZERO if they wish.

Road Map to ZERO Carbon

AU 1  copy.png
Stage 1 
Diagnostic Assessment

Includes these three parts :
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.

STARTING POINT : Carbon BaseLining Your Buildings

Before introducing carbon reduction measures, it is essential to know how much carbon is first being emitted by the building.
We have created a cost effective service that will :


  • calculates a building's carbon emissions to produce a carbon baseline

  • provides software with a customised dashboard that measures the monthly carbon emissions that the authority can control

  • allows the authority to demonstrate in real time the carbon emission reductions being achieved

  • generates an annual certificate that the authority can hang in the building to promote its carbon reduction success 

We also input all the data and set the system up for the authority. Basically it's a 'plug and play' product.


This service puts the authority in control of its carbon emissions for its non domestic  buildings to support the authority develop its Heat Decarbonisation Plan (HPD).


This is a cost effective service at just £385 plus vat per building with reduced prices available for multiple buildings.

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.
