Solar Energy UK Local Authority Guide (UK)

‘How Solar Energy can Deliver for Climate and Communities – A guide for Local Authorities’ looks at procurement methods for solar deployment for Local Authority assets, outlining three procurement methods:

  • Power Purchase Agreements
  • Procurement Frameworks/Dynamic Purchasing Systems
  • Collective Purchase Schemes

In this guidance, you’ll find step by step processes explained from a user’s perspective and case studies of previous successful projects across Local Authorities. Plus, a dedicated chapter looking at Social Housing, where the deployment of solar can deliver clean, affordable energy, which benefits the tenants and the Local Authority.

A case study of a pilot project funded by SOLARISE (page 33)  demonstrates how residents in Brighton & Hove City Council social housing can make maximum use of solar energy to keep their fuel bills down and increase access to renewable power.
