Local Area Energy Planning (LAEP) is a whole systems approach to developing robust Net Zero strategies for local places that are data-driven, collaborative and cost effective.
More than 75% of local authorities in the UK have declared a climate emergency, with most targeting Net Zero before 2050. Yet few have a clear plan on how to get there.
Pioneered by Energy Systems Catapult, LAEP helps local places navigate to Net Zero by combines cutting-edge whole system modelling with local stakeholder insights to support informed investment decision-making with consumers at the heart.
Our market-leading EnergyPath® Networks tool, models the unique characteristics of the local area, including: the type of building stock, heating technologies, existing energy networks, electrification of cars, as well as local spatial constraints and opportunities.
The LAEP process collaborates with a range of stakeholders including local authorities, distribution network operators, businesses and communities to plan for a data-driven, cost-effective low carbon transition.
