Who we are
What we do


APSE Energy was formed to reflect the changing dynamics of the energy market in the UK. Not so long ago, major utilities sat within local authority ownership and control, reflecting their role in public health issues, such as the supply of clean water and sanitation. This has now changed; as the global threats of climate change and energy shortages continue to grow, local authorities are increasingly looking at the developing prospects of municipal energy. APSE Energy is designed to bring councils together to share information, ideas, resources, best practice, and to support local energy projects. Working together enables them to exchange knowledge on finance, law, and procurement. It also helps them to gain greater marketplace leverage.

Our bespoke Local Authority Energy Collaboration is a partnership developed by member authorities that maximises the opportunities local authorities are currently offered by bringing councils together on a national scale to work on the green energy agenda. Currently, around 120 councils are members of APSE Energy.

Some of the many benefits of this collaboration include:

  • Support on demonstrator projects
  • Brokerage
  • Opportunities to share procurement frameworks, reduce costs and timescales
  • Consultancy support
  • Legal advice from dedicated legal partners
  • Technical and policy updates
  • Dedicated online portals and phone support
  • Discussion groups, workshops and conferences
  • Lobbying and networking
  • Profile-raising and research
