Energy is a priority for the council, but why is it so important?
Energy is expensive, in some cases, it pollutes the environment and traditional sources of energy (fossil fuels) have an uncertain future.
The demand for energy is directly linked to prosperity and our desire to improve the well-being of ourselves and our communities.
In 2016, the council approved its Energy Vision – the way we will be working towards our 2050 aim to be not only achieving our 80% carbon reduction but to be carbon neutral. We have also signed up to the Climate Local commitment and have implemented our Environment Policy.
