The report of the Economy and Development Directorate Projects Officer was submitted, seeking approval for the Centre for Energy and Environment (CEE) at Exeter University to undertake an initial feasibility assessment of options for a) low carbon energy solutions in those parts of Exwick without a mains gas connection and b) shared energy solutions for the City’s industrial estates, drawing on a survey of energy use in these areas. The Director Economy and Development reported that the £14,500 identified as a funding deficit in the report would be met from the Local Public Service Agreement (LPSA) performance reward grant.
Scrutiny Committee – Economy considered the report at their meeting on 4
September 2008 and the support and comments of Members were noted. Executive members also welcomed the potential benefits of the initiative in Exwick in terms of social inclusion.

(1) the proposal for an initial feasibility assessment of options for energy solutions to be undertaken by Exeter University, as outlined in the report, be approved; and
(2) the work to be funded by a £6000 contribution from EDF, £5,000 from the Economy and Development Directorate partnership reserve and £14,500 from the Local Public Service Agreement (LPSA) performance reward grant.
