Regional Energy Masterplan
The Regional Energy Masterplan is a critical element of the city region’s response to the Climate Emergency. Energy makes up the biggest element of the area’s carbon emissions, therefore the development of this plan is critical for the sustainable future of the region.
The Regional Energy Masterplan will provide a strategic overview of the city region area as a whole, assessing energy consumption needs and energy generation opportunities to assist in the transition to a low carbon region, to ensure residents and businesses across Stirling and Clackmannanshire have resilient, secure and affordable energy supplies with a focus on the key principles of:
- Tacking Fuel Poverty
- Improving Energy Efficiency
- Providing renewable and low carbon energy solutions
The projects, interventions and activities identified within the Regional Energy Masterplan will be staged over a 25 year programme, in five-year phases. Projects will be prioritised in line with local and national targets. Socio-economic assessments will ensure investment in infrastructure that brings direct benefits to our communities, including fuel poverty reduction, carbon emissions reduction and regeneration of localities, as well as providing a more resilient and reliable energy supply.The project is planned to be delivered before the end of March 2023.
