Greater Manchester Local Energy Market

Thursday 25th November 2021

Theatre :  Energy Future & Flexible Networks  Public Sector 

t4

GREATER Manchester has begun work on ambitious plans to revolutionise energy networks across the city-region, supporting a lower carbon future and our goal of becoming carbon neutral by 2038.

The proposals for a local energy market (LEM) would see Greater Manchester’s 10 boroughs draw up plans to increase energy efficiency and pave the way for new technologies and low-carbon infrastructure in the future.

By generating more energy locally and storing it within a localised system, Greater Manchester will be able to improve efficiency – with energy travelling a shorter distance from where it’s generated to the point of use, reducing our overall environmental footprint.
