Winner: Peterborough City Council – Energy strategy

Peterborough City Council has embarked on an energy strategy that generates renewable energy, reduces energy consumption, significantly enables regeneration, reduces carbon, gains financial benefits for the city and makes and saves money. By introducing non-domestic schemes and collective energy switching, adopting the Green Deal community fund, developing a scheme that enables free private residential roof solar panels and introducing the Peterborough Energy Tariff for residents in conjunction with partner energy supplier OVO, the council has done much to generate income to support its services, while addressing fuel poverty in the city. 

Judges’ comments: ”This entry detailed an impressive and innovative approach to commercialising significant environmental interventions to realise carbon savings and financial benefits.”
