The Leicester and Leicestershire Enterprise Partnership Limited (LLEP), in partnership with Leicester City Council & Leicestershire County Council, have commissioned an Energy Infrastructure Strategy and implementation plan for the LLEP area.
The Energy Infrastructure Strategy sets the level of ambition, and guides investment in the low carbon energy sector, which has been identified as one of the LLEP’s priority sectors for economic growth.
The strategy identifies a set of concrete project opportunities that can be pursued immediately and over the coming years. The projects proposed span the LLEP area, and involve a wide range of sectors including homes, businesses, transport, power generation and energy networks.
The strategy takes into account national policy (including the Clean Growth Strategy) and local policies and will feed into the development of the LLEP’s Industrial Strategy.
