Climate Change Action 

The Executive resolved that the Council becomes a member of Association for Public Service Excellence (APSE) and APSE Energy. 

APSE Energy is a bespoke Local Authority Energy Collaboration that constitutes a partnership of member authorities which looks to leverage and maximise the opportunities afforded to local authorities by working together on a national scale on the green energy agenda. APSE Energy is part of the wider APSE family with the specific aim of getting local authorities back into a position of influence in the local energy market. This could be via use of low carbon vehicles, promoting energy efficiency in domestic properties or addressing fuel poverty by delivering a local cheaper tariff for residents.  Find out more on the link below.
