Project Zero – Energy-Neutral Council by 2022

Partner : 10 October 2019

The goal is to deliver environmental excellence and reduced emissions, with long term carbon and financial savings as Exeter strives to become a zero carbon council. The ambition is enforced by an innovative programme of energy efficient and renewable initiatives, financially supported and delivered by a team of two.

 

Key Outputs

To date the team has reduced the Councils’ base load energy consumption, cut carbon emissions and delivered financial savings to support services through the delivery of over 20 energy saving projects. Carbon emissions have reduced from by 29%, energy consumption has dropped by 37% and last year the carbon emissions of the council’s fleet saw a 34% reduction after the introduction of electric vehicles (EV) and EV pool cars.
