Our energy system is changing from a centralised system, to one where local technologies are becoming more important.

Despite having no statutory role, local authorities are playing a more prominent role in local energy. Many local cities, including Leeds, are actively pursuing district heating systems and renewable energy projects.Leeds is also actively investigating the potential to become the first city in the UK to switch to 100% hydrogen through Northern Gas Network’s H21 project. And local authorities have a crucial part to play in the future of energy through our role as trusted local leaders, energy procurers, asset and vehicle fleet owners, stimulating regeneration, guiding the planning of new development, housing providers and managing local highways.

The speaker for this event will be Dr. Tom Knowland, Head of Sustainable Energy and Climate Change, Leeds City Council.

This event is free to attend and no booking is required to attend.
