The MLEI Cambridgeshire project has delivered more than £15 million worth of low carbon energy projects by the end of August 2015.
There are currently two types of investment projects:
- Building retrofits of energy efficiency measures and renewable energy to public sector sites: schools, offices, libraries, leisure centres and other buildings
- Larger scale renewables projects including a 12MW Solar photovoltaic farm to be built on County Council-owned land.
By starting with County Council and other MLEI Cambridgeshire partners own assets, we have expanded skills and experience in this kind of working, strengthening the local supply chain and demonstrating the possible return on investment. In the longer-term we plan to expand the scope of the investment programme, working with other public and commercial sector partners.
