Business and community energy
As well as offshore energy projects, there’s lots happening within North East Lincolnshire on land. We’re working with our partners to map the heat requirements and energy sources within our borough. We have some of the greenest power stations in the world in our boundaries. And several green energy companies have decided to base their facilities here.
We’re also working with the community to help reduce household bills and offer advice about home energy and how we can collectively reduce, manage, purchase and generate energy with an emphasis on local engagement, leadership and control.
Examples of community lead energy projects are:
- Joint switching of gas or electricity suppliers, such as the Big Community Switch
- Providing support for energy saving measures through a community group
- Community-owned renewable electricity installations, such as solar photovoltaic (PV) panels.
- The piloting of smart technologies with a local District Network Operator (DNO).
