Description

The Council recognises the role it must play in mitigating and adapting to the Climate Emergency, as a key influencer and policy maker. It also has a key role in delivering economic growth in the city and tackling inequalities. All three areas make up strands of the One Coventry plan. Providing the right energy infrastructure across the city is critical to all three of these strands. A strategic outlook on energy infrastructure will support and enable delivery of what is identified as needed.

What is also recognised are the constraints in delivering this strategic outlook and infrastructure development, in resources, expertise, project delivery and routes to funding.

Therefore, it is anticipated that an Energy Partner would sit alongside the Council in a long-term contractual joint venture relationship to deliver the following objectives:

o To contribute to and influence the review of energy needs in the city (also in relation to impact upon climate change and carbon emissions reduction), and how these may be achieved with discrete or strategic projects (including community, residential, commercial and industrial developments).
o To assist with the authoring of the energy infrastructure strategy (which complements completely the broader Sustainability & Climate Change strategy)
o To identify projects or initiatives that will deliver the strategy and complete the corresponding business case(s) to support implementation of these projects.
o Apply resource across a project or initiative lifecycle to deliver the required outcomes, or attract further third party resource and input to deliver the same (sub-contracting)
o To fund via debt or equity, or to assist in third party fund raising, to deliver projects or initiatives
o To identify opportunities for viable commercial enterprise and income generation which assists to secure additional resources to re-invest in developing energy infrastructure and services and meet environmental standards required by developers and investors now and in the future.
o To be the Councils operating partner or to oversee other operational models for each of the projects or initiatives as they are delivered.
o To provide the appropriate level of stakeholder engagement/consultation activity required in the design and delivery of business case(s) and projects.
o To embed social value within the strategic outlook, business case(s) and delivery approach and ensures that outputs/outcomes can be clearly measured.

The following outcomes have been identified by internal stakeholders as priorities for delivering the One Coventry Plan. This is not an exhaustive list as CCC will work with the Strategic Partner to develop and refine the intended outcomes of the project. The Partner will be encouraged to challenge and add to the intended outcomes.

o Enable zero carbon, energy efficient, resilient and adaptable buildings across the city
o a programme of activity across…
