Review of Renewable Energy Potential

The Partnership Board commissioned Land Use Consultants and Thames Valley Energy in 2010 to undertake a review of the potential for renewable energy development in the South East.  The research was funded by DECC and involved applying the methodology that it developed to ensure that all regional assessments followed a consistent approach.  The work was intended to inform the Regional Strategy. Due to the revocation of RSS and ending of regional planning, the reports have been tailored as far as possible to be useful to planning authorities in developing their own assessments and evidence base for local policy.

Decentralised and Renewable Energy Workshop

The Partnership Board held four events in May 2010 attended by over 150 participants addressing low carbon, decentralised and renewable energy. Presentations from the day are available here:

Morning session - Decentralised heat and Combined Heat and Power

These reviewed work undertaken by Beyond Waste, RPS and Thames Valley Energy in 2009 identifying the major opportunities in the region for development of decentralised heat networks, based on assessments of potential demand and supply (see our publications and research page for the reports).
