Energy South2East

South2East Energy StrategyOver the next thirty years, our energy systems will need to rapidly evolve to enable us to decarbonise and take advantage of new technologies such as electric vehicles.

Three LEPs (Local Enterprise partnerships); Coast to Capital, Enterprise M3 and the South East LEP, are working together to create an Energy Strategy for the South East, an area spanning all the way from Harwich to Winchester, that will set down a clear vision for the area, alongside a detailed action plan of priority projects to be taken forward to Government and other sources of funding.

The South2East Energy will recognise the fundamental importance of the UK’s energy ‘trilemma’ finding clean, affordable, sustainable energy provision for economic growth.

The draft strategy will:

  • provide a clear analysis of the energy opportunities and challenges across the Tri- LEP area, for power, heat and transport
  • respond to national trajectory of decarbonisation and clean growth
  • estimate the demand on energy and carbon emissions over time
  • consider energy and low carbon priorities for the South East
  • consider future funding options to deliver low carbon energy projects
  • present conclusions and recommendations to central government

The resultant strategy will recognise the aspirations of BEIS (Department for Business, Energy, Energy & Industrial Strategy) delivering solutions that will take UK on a journey to providing local energy provision shifting the country to a low carbon economy.

Get involved!

We would like to invite you to attend a stakeholder engagement workshop to understand what energy projects you want delivered in the South East of England. You’re someone who can play a key role in developing an Energy Strategy which will drive the funding required to secure an economic and sustainable future for the region, its businesses, and ultimately you and your community.

At our next workshop in May where we will:

  • Discuss the opportunities and challenges for the South East
  • Define an aligned vision for the strategy
  • Agree some key themes/focus areas
  • Identify key projects that you would like to see included in the strategy

The South East region covers all the way from Colchester to Winchester, so to make things easier we’re hosting three identical events at different locations. Please choose the one that’s most convenient to you.
