Regen is working with Energy Networks Association to develop a report looking at how energy networks and local authorities can better collaborate on local net zero planning and delivery.

Project manager: Mollie Atherton

Exploring the various points of interaction between local authorities and energy networks, this project focuses on understanding more about the relationships, processes, technologies and innovations that enable local authorities and networks to share planning information and align local planning with network planning and investment.  

The project is the starting point for ongoing work by Energy Networks Association to help drive consistency across how the networks engage with local authorities, particularly about topics like open data, strategic planning, connections and innovation.  

Regen has engaged more than 30 local authorities through interviews and workshops to gather their insights about the engagement process and to understand from a local authority perspective what best practice looks like. 

The report will be published in December 2023.
