Welcome to the Greater South East Energy Hub’s website.

Here you will find out more about this exciting partnership project, and also learn more about the new roles we are currently recruiting for. Scroll down to find out more…


The Greater South East Energy Hub is a collaboration of eleven LEP’s who are working together to increase the number, quality and scale of local energy projects being delivered across the South East of the UK, over time.

Many local energy projects within LEP areas are not reaching delivery, either because they are too small to meet investor criteria or there is lack of resource and technical expertise to deliver them.

The Hub will operate via a new team of eight experts, who will help to consolidate and up-scale local energy projects. Individual and multi-LEP energy strategies will provide the initial evidence base for the Hub to begin its work in late 2018, and the new team will provide resources and knowledge to determine how such projects can be developed.

Multi-regional collaboration to deliver local projects will benefit local authorities and their communities, private investors and businesses operating in the low carbon sector.

The delivery of local energy projects will aid the UK’s transition to a low carbon economy, through the provision of renewable energy infrastructure and application of new technologies. This is essential to ensure affordable and reliable energy supply in years to come, and at the same time reduce carbon emissions to mitigate against climate change.
