Are you a small or medium-sized business, interested in lowering energy costs, reducing your carbon footprint and leading the way for a clean energy future? 

Warrington Borough Council have worked with partners to successfully bid for funding from UK Research and Innovation, as part of their Prospering from the Energy Revolution programme.

The two year Rewire-NW project is led by community energy and sustainability charity Pure Leapfrog with 11 partners drawn from the energy industry and academia. The £2.8m project is 50% funded by project partners.

The project aims to design a Smart Local Energy System, identifying ways to optimize the energy infrastructure in Warrington including electricity, heat and transport. The ultimate aim of the project is to identify ways in which consumer savings and low carbon aspirations can be achieved as part of the UK’s pathway to net zero carbon, creating the energy systems of the future.

What participants will gain

The project will analyse how customers may generate savings on their energy bills through time-of-use based flexible local energy tariffs, demand shifting and automation for energy efficiency. It will also evaluate potential costs and how joining the local energy scheme could increase ROI for solar, battery storage and EV charging installed in premises.
