The Cheshire Energy Hub
The Cheshire Energy Hub is an energy sector support organisation, which has been entirely funded and strategically driven by industry. It works with its member organisations and key stakeholders in promoting collaborative action, advancing the skills agenda and working towards business solutions to drive economic development in Cheshire and the wider North West region.
The Hub Brings Together …
… a rich source of knowledge, experience and innovation across a number of organisations, allowing for greater scope and diversity of learning and development within the energy sector.
Our Mission – Strategic Development of the Cheshire Energy Hub.The Cheshire Energy Hub (CEH) was founded in May 2014 and is responsible for driving economic development of the energy sector in Cheshire. The members of the CEH largely comprise industrial, commercial and technology organisations operating in Cheshire who are seeking areas where active co-operation will result in mutual benefit. The primary driver, reflected in the mission statement, is to reduce energy costs. For many of the large businesses in the target area, the cost of energy is a commercial significant proportion of their cost base and one which is increasingly a competitive disadvantage. See Strategic Development Proposal here. The premise of this proposal is that managing and balancing energy consumption across the target area can provide sufficient scale to incentivise a range of technologies to be deployed towards reducing energy costs. Creating this market place will raise the brand of the area, attract new investment and funding, allow the area to lead in this critical technology area and reduce operating costs for its major energy users. It will be a further step towards the government aspiration to ‘democratize energy’.
Energy Innovation District
Devised and driven by a the Cheshire Energy Hub coalition the Energy Innovation District (EID) is an opportunity to deliver a new energy system in the North West of England. The objective is to provide secure, low carbon and lower cost energy – in turn helping to decarbonise the region while boosting economic growth and investment. The EID addresses the 10 pillars of the Industrial Strategy and includes energy-intensive industries, energy generators, innovative research companies, operators of the electric and gas networks, academics and owners of strategic development sites where businesses and supply chains can locate.

E-Port Energy Study
The E-Port Smart Energy Master Plan examines energy use and generation in the area. This will involve talking to industrial, commercial and residential energy users to find out how much energy they use. The project also examines current and future energy generation, including renewables, and how future energy uses, like electric vehicles, and new fuels, like hydrogen, could change the energy market. The master plan will set out a ten year private sector investment programme for developing a smart grid in Ellesmere Port that could be rolled out across the UK.
