Smart Energy Plan – Greater Manchester Combined Authority

Published: 30 April 2019


As part of the Smart Systems and Heat phase 2 programme, Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA) has developed a Smart Energy Plan with support from Energy Systems Catapult, the Energy Technologies Institute and other stakeholders.

It builds on the strategic activities identified in the Local Area Energy Strategy (LAEP), which was developed by the Smart Systems and Heat phase 1 programme.

Greater Manchester’s (GM) vision is for a carbon-neutral city region, with an energy system, which is smart, fit for the future, low carbon, and economically environmentally and socially sustainable.

This whole system Smart Energy Plan developed for GM provides a targeted focus for the GMCA and local partners, through defining a roadmap and several initial projects and activities over a 5-year timeframe.
