Greater Manchester Combined Authority was announced yesterday as winner of the Local Energy Leadership award at this year’s Green Energy Awards, hosted by Regen, a leading centre of expertise in the transition to net zero energy, and sponsored by specialist grid consultancy Roadnight Taylor.
The Awards are a leading national celebration of innovative technologies, pioneering companies, and inspiring individuals shaking up the energy system and driving towards a zero carbon future.
The Local Energy Leadership award celebrates local public sector organisations with clear political leadership, as well as ambitious and supportive policy frameworks, and inspiring projects across the whole energy system.
Greater Manchester Combined Authority’s portfolio of policies and projects have put them on target to reach their goal of becoming carbon neutral by 2038. The authority has incorporated a whole system approach, delivering energy efficiency measures for the worst performing homes, investing in innovation and new business models as well as developing renewable energy generation.
Merlin Hyman, chief executive, Regen, said,
“The 2022 Green Energy Awards showcased the extraordinary range of innovative zero carbon solutions available and the pioneering individuals committed to bringing them forward. The inspiring award winners and nominees demonstrate we have the ability to end our addiction to fossil fuels and will, I hope, galvanise us all to take even bolder action towards net zero.”
