We empower organisations across Oxfordshire to make energy efficiency improvements to their buildings and premises

ABOUT the project

A partnership project

Energy Solutions Oxfordshire forms part of the ESCO-in-a-Box project, led by EnergyPro Ltd and funded by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) until June 2021.

ESCO-in-a-Box aims to equip community-based organisations with a toolkit for delivering energy efficiency services to businesses in their area: standardised processes, vetted technology partners and contractors, guaranteed savings and suitable finance.

Oxfordshire is the pilot area for this concept, with our partners working closely with the EnergyPro Ltd team to develop and test the toolkit through setting up Energy Solutions Oxfordshire to deliver energy improvements to local businesses.

To drastically reduce our carbon emissions, we must quickly address the high energy usage of our buildings – increasing energy efficiency and reducing energy demand.

ABOUT our partners

Our partners

Energy Solutions Oxfordshire is a partnership between the Low Carbon Hub and Oxford Brookes University’s Environmental Information Exchange.

Since 2017 we’ve combined our expertise to support local businesses with energy efficiency through OxFutures, generating 136 energy audits and over 800 energy recommendations (and supported the delivery of over 300 of these recommendations). So you can be sure you’re in safe hands.

The Low Carbon Hub is a social enterprise out to prove we can meet our energy needs in a way that’s good for people and good for the planet. They develop community-owned renewable energy projects in Oxfordshire, and also work across several energy reduction programmes, including OxFutures. They are working closely with EnergyPro to develop the business model within Oxfordshire, as the first ‘francisee’ of the toolkit.
Oxford Brookes University’s Environmental Information Exchange (EiE) is a not-for-profit organisation based at Oxford Brookes University providing UK organisations with support to reduce their energy, water, and waste. They are also supporting the development of the service in Oxfordshire and will be providing energy auditing, feasibility, and project management. They also work with Low Carbon Hub on OxFutures.
EnergyPro are a consultancy helping to make business sense of the energy transition. They are leading on the wider project which Energy Solutions Oxfordshire is part of, developing a toolkit or operating system to enable community organisations across the UK to set up Energy Service Companies (ESCOs). This would create a national network of ‘one-stop-shops’ across the UK, supporting businesses to take up energy efficiency improvements.

“[The] energy audit report really hit the spot. It highlighted some obvious, low-cost improvements that we can get on with quickly as well as the bigger things that will make a significant difference to our energy usage and carbon footprint.”
