Engaging local businesses is key to achieving local authority low carbon targets

BRE, a project partner of Cornwall New Energy, joined Cornwall Council and 70+ other local authorities from across the UK at the annual APSE Energy Big Energy Summit to discuss innovative approaches to achieving local low carbon targets.

The theme of this years’ Summit was ‘Energising local government’ with a focus on hearing about projects that have been successful, the approach taken by those putting projects into action, the problems they have overcome, the policy context and the support that can get you, or keep your council, moving. The municipalisation of energy continues to develop and this summit is aimed at encouraging that movement.
