Stoke-on-Trent City Council’s Partnership With Siemens Dramatically Reduces Carbon And Costs

Stoke Civic Centre ● Stoke-on-Trent City Council has a long-term commitment to reduce its carbon footprint and to improve the sustainability of its services.

● A total investment of £6.24m since 2019, comprising a £4.34m grant from the national Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme, as well as council funding and private sector investment was used to fund the projects.

● Works included projects across 11 public buildings in the city, which have reduced annual CO2 emissions by 1,415 tonnes, saved £628,258 per year in energy costs, decreased overall power consumption by 4,07,272 kWh, and decreased gas consumption by 2,864,974 kWh.

● The three-year phased-improvements programme optimised energy efficiencies, developed onsite generation and added decarbonisation measures to several buildings and sites across the city.

In April 2017 Stoke-on-Trent City Council formed a strategic collaboration with Siemens to develop a series of energy-saving projects as part of the council’s plans to dramatically decrease carbon emissions, increase the use of renewable energy and reduce costs. As the lead technical partner, boosted by several local partnerships, Siemens entered discussions to investigate ways of improving the energy performance of the local authority’s buildings over a five-year period.
