This board will drive forward an affordable and reliable energy for the Greater Lincolnshire area, whilst also promoting economic growth, providing this via a whole-system and clean energy approach.

Greater Lincolnshire LEP recognises that while important progress has been made in cost reduction and deployment of clean energy technologies at a national level, the pace of innovation and the scale of UK economy-wide energy transformation and adoption, remains significantly short of what is needed.

The Council will focus on the progression of the current and long-term outcomes and opportunities to a whole-system approach for the Greater Lincolnshire area; and for the transformation of energy, particularly the opportunities around developing a rural innovation test bed for energy and water (and waste).

The Energy Council provides high-level strategic guidance to implement the Enabling Framework for Greater Lincolnshire, make strategic recommendations for long-term energy goals, support the active engagement of businesses, and potentially suggest funding opportunities as needed to implement the Enabling Framework.
