Jeff Laidler, Head of Sustainability, Enfield Council
Our vision is to form an effective collaboration of a large number of local authorities to enable and facilitate the municipalisation of energy services. By this we mean the public and community, as well as private, ownership and managerial control of local energy generation, supply networks and delivery of energy efficiency works. Local authorities working together in this way would have great influence and would be able to deliver economies of scale in green energy to promote economic growth and combat fuel poverty.
APSE believes that this is a bold and exciting vision and opportunity for local government and has, along with a number of its member authorities, invested a great deal of time and resource to put together a collaboration of councils with the stated aim of municipalising energy. We believe that there is both a will and an appetite in many councils to take this vision forward and to make it a reality. APSE energy will therefore be predicated upon a core group of authorities to act as founder members to APSE Energy to make this a viable new project.
