Case studies

Collaborate with us

Ellesmere Port in Cheshire is home to one of the UK’s largest industrial clusters – featuring major manufacturing employers, including oil refining, glass manufacture, nuclear enrichment, chemical production and automotive.

This concentration of industry means the area around Ellesmere Port consumes around 5% of the UK’s energy, with Cheshire West and Chester local authority being the fourth largest carbon emitter in the country with a climate emergency declared locally.

Energy Systems Catapult provided Whole Systems Modelling and Systems Engineering capabilities to help the Ellesmere Port – Cheshire Energy Hub consortium identify a portfolio of opportunities across renewables, hydrogen, carbon capture, energy storage and smart grids that offers long-term, sustainable investment opportunities as a pathway towards Net Zero.

An investment blueprint has been developed which could see £1 billion spent on low carbon projects in Cheshire and nearly 3 million tonnes of CO2 saved by 2030.

Commission us

Helping the owners of complex sites navigate to Net Zero, with a pioneering approach that offers practical steps to deliver real action based on bespoke data.
