Finance and Procurement for Net-Zero

This project explores the role of public procurement and place-based finance in shaping net-zero delivery at a local scale. Whether local authority, community or business led, procurement and finance can play a key role in facilitating, upscaling and replicating energy demand reductions and sustainable energy service delivery for net-zero.

We work on the basis that: public procurement represents the public demand for net zero energy services and demand reductions; place-based finance instruments facilitate their supply; and energy is both a cornerstone for meeting net-zero targets and an opportunity to create local resources and capabilities to govern their implementation.

Working with local authority, business and  community partners in the South-West and South-East, the project offers insights into the opportunities and limitations of local net-zero implementation with regards to local authority resources and capabilities.
