Local Authorities are working with reduced budgets. There is very little grant funding available yet many Local Authorities are implementing renewable energy schemes.
Why are they doing this? And how do they achieve it?
This new CLASP briefing written by Warrington Borough Council and Quantum explains the benefits, finance options and practical steps to take for Local Authority investments in renewable energy projects. The overarching lesson from officers interviewed for this briefing is ‘just get on with it’ – the business case is still a good one for the right technologies in the right place. The guide contains examples of a range of real-life projects led by authorities and covers:
- Essential Background
- Making Your Project Happen
- Financing and Ownership Options
