Local Leadership To Transform Our Energy System

The UK will not achieve its net zero ambition without the active engagement of the people and organisations living and working in each of the UK’s nations, cities and regions.  A locally led energy transition can bring the skilled jobs, investment and resilience needed for a green recovery and put the country on course to achieving a zero carbon society. 

The latest in our Decade to Make a Difference series, ‘Local leadership to transform our energy system’ is sponsored by Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks and aims to inspire and inform local government to play a leadership role in decarbonising energy, from working with energy network operators on critical infrastructure, to building social permission for radical change in their communities.   

The paper sets out a major programme to devolve powers and funding on energy – empowering local leaders to tackle the climate emergency at a time when they are facing unprecedented challenges responding to the pandemic and huge pressures on their budgets.
