The South West Energy Hub

The BEIS funded Energy Hubs is a nationwide initiative to support the identification, development and implementation of energy projects across five regional hubs. The initiative has five core objectives aimed at stimulating local investment in energy projects. 1. Increase the number, quality and scale of local energy projects being delivered 2. Raise local awareness of the opportunity for and benefits of local energy investment 3. Enable local areas to attract private and/or public finance for energy projects 4. Support rural community energy project development 5. Deliver initiatives to improve energy efficiency in housing 6. Public Sector Decarbonisation Skills Projects can be supported across a range of scale, with Hub assistance available to accelerate routes to market for programmes stuck in early feasibility stages.

The South West Energy Hub (SWEH) is currently supporting four key programmes – Local Capacity Support for strategic regional energy projects, the Rural Community Energy Fund, for smaller, community led energy projects, the Green Homes Grant Local Authority Delivery Scheme and Public Sector Decarbonisation Sills. The Energy Hub offers support to eligible project owners at any point through the development stages, from feasibility, business case, design and planning to financing. Where possible, the Hub will look to maximise benefits across the region by aggregating solutions to drive economies of scale. Additionally, the Energy Hub also serves as a conduit between local energy actors and central Government, providing a combined voice for pan-regional energy issues, connecting local institutions and sharing best practice across the five Hub regions.
