Bristol City Council is seeking up to £1bn investment in Bristol’s energy infrastructure over the next decade to help the city reach its goal of becoming carbon neutral by 2050. On Wednesday 9 May the council announced a global search for partners to respond to a series of energy and infrastructure investment opportunities it has identified for local, national and international businesses. The largest investment opportunities available are in expanding the city’s heat networks (£300mn) and reducing fuel poverty through domestic energy efficiency measures (£300mn). The council is also considering the development of a “Bristol Battery” that would connect to local and national energy networks.
