Energy strategy

Energy strategy

East Hampshire District Council created the energy strategy in November 2014.

The energy strategy will help us deliver a low-carbon, energy efficient, economically vibrant community.

It builds on the Corporate Strategy and the Joint Core Strategy, also known as the Local Plan, that will shape and guide development in East Hampshire to 2028.

Greenhouse gas report

Climate change is becoming increasingly more important at the local and national level. Since 2011 local authorities have been required by the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC), now the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS), to measure and report their greenhouse gas emissions.

Home Energy Conservation Act (HECA) 1995 report

The Home Energy Conservation Act (1995) recognises local authorities' ability to use their position to improve the energy efficiency of all residential accommodation in their areas.

It also contributes to to the wider agenda at the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) to ensure that energy supplies are smarter, cleaner, more secure and affordable to consumers and businesses and by supporting economic growth across the country.

EHDC HECA report sets out the domestic energy conservation measures that the authority considers practicable, cost-effective and likely to result in significant improvement in the energy efficiency of residential accommodation in its area. 

Renewable heat studies

A renewable heat mapping exercise and a series of feasibility studies funded in part by the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and the Heat Network Delivery Unit (HNDU) were conducted in 2016. This report identifies potential sites and provides technical and financial information.
