Renewable Energy & Storage

Making the most of our assets

The County Council owns a large property portfolio, spanning corporate buildings, park and ride sites and farm estate.  Our Corporate Energy Strategy encourages the Energy Investment Unit to assess the feasibility of that portfolio to host clean energy projects. 

We’ve scoured the County and have several parcels being investigated for their suitability.  The most advanced projects are smart energy grids at several park and ride sites, however we’re also assessing whether closed landfill sites might support technology like ground-mounted solar or battery projects.  The projects aim to not only generate clean, local electricity, they will also supply vital revenue for frontline services.
