What is MLEI?
Mobilising Local Energy Investment (MLEI) is an ambitious project with the aim of attracting more energy investment and infrastructure delivery into Cambridgeshire and Peterborough. The MLEI project builds on research completed in 2012 that estimated we could deliver 28% of Cambridgeshire’s energy needs from renewable sources by 2013, but that it would require in the region of £2 to 6 billion in up front investment.
We want to turn this theory into reality by setting up an investment fund that will make possible the delivery of a programme of energy projects. This will include low carbon energy generation and energy efficiency infrastructure, with an initial focus on public sector and community projects; but also being open to commercial projects that may be brought forward.
Cambridgeshire County Council is leading the MLEI Project with partners including Cambridge City Council, South Cambridgeshire District Council, Huntingdonshire District Council and Peterborough City Council. Funding assistance has been agreed from the EU Intelligent Energy Europe programme, to support this project.
