The Local Energy North West Hub provides public sector institutions with support to help them develop sound propositions that can reduce both energy bills and carbon emissions.

The team works flexibly to help organisations better understand the business case for their project proposals and any funding and finance that may be available.

The team can direct organisations to private, public and community finance to enable the delivery of schemes. The team will support others to understand Energy as a Service, Invest to Save and Energy Performance Contracts.

The team works with a growing network of organisations across the region and beyond that are seeking to advance the clean growth agenda.


Project support is allocated to selected schemes that best align with the goals of the programme.

Please contact us with a brief summary of your project proposal. We will endeavour to respond to all enquires but must prioritise activities that are most likely to identify a viable opportunity.

Projects will ideally:

  • Involve public or community sector institutions, including as a supporter of a private sector investment
  • Be led by teams that have clear objectives and resources to commit to the preparation of detailed business cases
  • Be large in scale; investments over £400k
  • Aggregate smaller projects into larger programmes
  • Have the potential to be duplicated elsewhere
  • Deliver a public good such as carbon savings, health and well-being, resilience
  • Rely on market-ready or nearly market-ready technologies, with scope for these to be integrated in innovative ways
