D2N2 Energy Strategy

Our Energy Strategy 2019-2030 “D2N2 Clean Industrial Revolution” sets out how the D2N2 LEP area can grow its economy whilst making it cleaner and greener.

Its delivery is overseen by our Low Carbon Growth Group.

Objectives to create a sustainable and clean growth economy by 2030 include:

  • 100 new businesses to join the low carbon and renewable energy sector, creating 1,000 new jobs;
  • halving the amount of carbon (CO2) emissions produced as a result of increased business turnover (to under 210 tonnes of CO2 emissions for every million pounds increase in GVA), to ‘decouple’ the link between economic growth inevitably meaning more CO2 emissions;
  • at least a 60% reduction of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions levels (against 1990 emissions levels);
  • 15% reduction in per person energy demand;
  • 15% of buildings to be using low carbon heating;
  • to comply with, and exceed where possible, applicable air quality standards in all locations;
  • 100% low carbon energy supply with 60% of that to be generated by ‘renewables’ (solar, wind, biomass, etc) generation;
  • increase transport opportunities to support target of 70% of all vehicle miles to generate ultra-low carbon emissions;
  • 15 MegaWatts (MW) of energy to be produced by community energy schemes and two industrial sites to be brought into low carbon energy generation and innovation;
  • 100% avoidance of recoverable materials going to landfill;
  • investing in profitable energy efficiency and low carbon options, to cut total energy bills by £1,030million a year (an action against ‘fuel poverty’).
