APSE Energy is running the Scottish Energy Summit so that the local government sector has the chance to keep learning and sharing experience and expertise.

With a vision of ‘the municipalisation of energy’ and councils having a greater role in the local energy market, we are committed to supporting local authorities as they attempt to gain the benefits of using their assets, tackling local issues and investing in energy.
