Regen is working with Plymouth City Council to review the decarbonisation opportunities in the Plymouth waterfront area.

Project duration: April 2022 – August 2022

Project lead: Olly Frankland

The path to decarbonise the UK will require local authorities to set out specific plans to decarbonise their areas based on their unique resources and geography. Regen is working with a range of local authorities and stakeholders in order to progress this area. For example, the Local delivery of clean heat project and established  Distribution Future Energy Scenarios (DFES) delivery for network operators.

Regen is supporting Plymouth City Council (PCC) to develop a strategy for decarbonising the waterfront area in Plymouth.  The analysis aims to support PCC’s ambition, set out in its Climate Emergency Declaration, for Plymouth to be net zero carbon by 2030.

Our approach uses concepts underpinning local area energy planning together with the scenario planning framework and data used in the DFES for Western Power Distribution (WPD).

The project is funded by the Community Renewal Fund.

We are delivering the work in two phases:

  • Phase 1 (work package 1, 2 and 3) – a high level analysis of the opportunities for decarbonisation in the Plymouth waterfront area, taking into account the wider objectives of the National Marine Park, Freeport plan, marine e-charging Living Lab project in partnership with Plymouth University and PCC climate emergency action plans.
  • Phase 2 (work package 4 and 5) – an in-depth analysis of up to two key opportunity areas – marine charging infrastructure and marine source heat pumps and heat networks.
