The Worcestershire LEP has launched an Energy strategy for the county which aims to create a thriving low-carbon economy across Worcestershire by 2030, which will support the creation of high value jobs, and stimulate investment and clean growth across the county.
This strategy has been produced to help identify the opportunities and challenges that Worcestershire faces in its movement towards a low-carbon, low emission economy.

There are numerous businesses in the county which are already investing in low carbon and renewable energy schemes. These business case studies are listed below to demonstrate how other businesses can adapt by implementing similar approaches.
As well as this, Worcestershire is a part of the Midlands Energy Hub hosted by Nottingham County Council, an initiative funded by Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS). Nottingham city council have said it will enable new energy projects to be developed locally, which will serve local authorities across nine local enterprise partnerships in Midlands region. As a part of this, all nine LEPs will receive a Senior Energy Projects Officer to provide additional local capacity and expertise to the LEP and partners to support delivery of local energy schemes. It is also hoped that it will lead to the development of new hi-tech ‘green technology’ companies.
