Local Energy is a social enterprise established by the Local Government Information Unit (LGIU) in 2010.

Any surplus we make goes back to support the LGIU’s charitable work.

Local Energy was initially set up to manage the growing volume of work in the public sector on carbon reduction, climate change, energy efficiency and the Green Deal.

We still help public sector organisations manage the risks associated with ever-changing legislation on climate change, carbon emissions and energy efficiency. We also help local authorities and their communities to take advantage of the opportunities offered by renewable energy technologies such as solar PV, wind and biomass and incentive schemes including Feed In Tariffs and the Renewable Heat Incentive.

Green Deal and ECO

Local Energy is an authorised Green Deal provider (GDPA124). In common with all our work, we endeavour to work closely with local authorities and other public sector bodies to help them use Green Deal as an effective tool to improve energy efficiency.

We are pleased to have been selected as one of the Providers for the Solent Green Deal, a collaboration between local authorities in the Hampshire area, providing Green Deal Plans and delivering energy efficiency measures to householders in the local community.

Local Energy has also delivered more than £25million of ECO funding, secured through the brokerage system, to householders across England. As well as providing an income stream, this work has allowed us to develop an in-depth understanding of the issues and opportunities surrounding the Green Deal and ECO, which we hope to pass on to local authorities through our network.
