Energy Accelerator

The LEP’s Energy Accelerator is an innovative programme designed to help low carbon and energy efficient projects become a reality where they may otherwise not have been completed due to a lack of capacity, expertise and funding.

The only programme of its kind anywhere in the UK, it is funded by the Leeds City Region Growth Deal and European Investment Bank.

Once up and running, the Accelerator will increase levels of technical support and investment for low-carbon projects in Leeds City Region, enable at least £60m worth of capital investment and help the City Region achieve our aim of being a zero-carbon energy economy by 2036.
