Cheshire Energy Hub

The Cheshire Energy Hub has been entirely funded and strategically driven by industry. The energy sector support organisation is a multi-employer partnership between a number of leading international Cheshire based organisations based around Ellesmere Port near Chester.

One of the UK’s largest industrial clusters, the area around Ellesmere Port consumes around 5% of the nation’s energy and includes some of the UK’s largest manufacturers. The region has the largest concentration of advanced manufacturing and chemical production in the UK – currently producing around 40 million tonnes of CO2 annually – and has a core mission to become the UK’s first low carbon industrial cluster by 2030 and world’s first net zero industrial cluster by 2040. This vision for the North West, now taken up by Net Zero North West, will save 38.5 mega-tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions and turbocharge the UK economy by £285bn GVA.

The Cheshire Energy Hub brought together network owners, innovators and partners, including EA Technology, Urenco, Peel NRE, Burns & McDonnell, BGS, Cadent, Engie, Storengy, Tata Chemicals, SP Energy Networks (SPEN), Encirc, ESSAR, the Cheshire & Warrington Local Enterprise Partnership, Cheshire West & Chester LA and the University of Chester.

Cheshire, and the North West, is a leader on the way to net-zero, involving more than £100m of capital investment and the creation of 33,000 jobs, safeguarding or creating over 660,000 jobs. Cheshire Energy Hub helped develop a skilled workforce through work with the University of Chester, local colleges and schools and by recognising innovation.

The Cheshire Energy Hub is the first sponsor for 2024’s Green Expo UK.
