Many local authorities have set out targets for the transition to net zero but lack the necessary finance and skills to achieve these goals. The Net Zero Hub commissioned a scoping study to explore whether the creation of a specialised, place-based delivery vehicle, could:
- Increase the flow of capital to integrated net zero projects.
- Address the lack of development and financing capacity of local authorities.
- Turn economic potential into bankable programmes.
- Provide a replicable solution that could be deployed as soon as possible.
The report, which is available for download below, sets out how the Net Zero Delivery Vehicle was successfully conceptualised and tested via the scoping study. Further work is now underway to develop the business case for locally-based Net Zero Delivery Vehicles.
