What is the Business Support?

Nottingham City Council is a leading organisation in the energy revolution; generating green energy and installing and developing the latest technology to reduce energy consumption.

The council’s award winning Energy Services is the driving force behind this activity, delivering projects that ensure organisations have access to a secure and affordable energy supply; reducing operational costs, risks and environmental impacts.

We work with large corporates, small-medium enterprises and the public sector to help organisations to switch to renewable and low carbon energy solutions.

What is the Midland Energy Hub

The role of the Hub is to support the capacity of Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEP) and local authorities to identify and deliver local energy strategies and projects. There are nine LEP areas across the Midlands and each LEP area has a locally based Senior Energy Project Officer. The project officers will provide support to help deliver energy projects being developed in each geographical region.

How we can help

The Midlands Energy Hub aims to provide here a comprehensive list of the various sources of funding aimed at local authorities and businesses who want to deliver local energy projects in England.

If you require further advice or know of any additional sources, please contact us. You should also look at the Investment information on this website for a fuller understanding of the range of financing opportunities available.

Project Support

The Energy Hub supports projects through the development stages, from options appraisal and feasibility, business case, design and planning through to financing.

Project support is allocated to selected schemes that best meet the aims of the programme. We would expect projects to;

  • involve public or community sector organisations;
  • align with the local enterprise partnerships’ energy strategies;
  • have the potential to be scalable and/or replicable or form an aggregation of smaller projects into larger programmes;
  • demonstrate clear benefits such as emissions reduction, renewable energy generation, energy cost savings;
  • address common market failures such as unlocking economic development opportunities.
