Understanding Electricity: Reducing costs and increasing income for local authorities

This publication is written for local authority officers and councillors to help to inform you about the benefits of investing in electricity.

Having an understanding of electricity is vital to being able to manage energy better and invest effectively to generate, distribute or supply it. This publication provides a clear and concise explanation of the topic of electricity, how it works and, most importantly, how the people and businesses that local authorities serve can benefit from it.

Solar investments are becoming more common amongst local authorities, both on their own land and investing in assets owned by others. Solar is known as a safe asset class in which to invest. The publication provides a lot of information about solar and the main steps to a successful project.

This publication is available to APSE Energy members without charge. All energy members will have received the password. Please contact Charlotte Banks at cbanks@apse.org.uk if you'd like to be resent the password.
