… by aligning our retrofit plans to the development of ‘20- minute neighbourhoods’ and sustainable places. We’ve made outstanding progress on reducing our waste emissions, largely thanks to the opening of Millerhill waste plant. We’ll continue to make progress by further improving waste services for citizens and promoting the reduce, reuse, repair and recycle approach to minimising unnecessary…

… to the Millerhill Energy from Waste plant between 2018/19 and 2019/20. The scale of the effort required to bring Council operational emissions down to zero corresponds to an annual reduction of roughly 7,000 tCO2e per year, or 9% per year, following a linear target pathway by 2030. The Council Emissions Reduction Plan will however, evaluate progress through a carbon budget that operates on three-year…

… to connect to heat networks, and develop a Local Heat and Energy Efficiency Strategies (LHEES). Assessing the options for delivering low carbon heat will become central to future strategy for Council buildings. This may involve either local plant and/or connection to heat networks. Low carbon heat will be adopted as the default option for new builds in place of other systems such as gas boilers…

…, and suitability for all replacement works of heat generation plant will be considered. Furthermore, the feasibility of localised heat networks for operational buildings will be examined where they offer the potential to deliver efficiencies on individual plant replacement. Expansion of solar PV estate This targets the installation of solar PV on all appropriate new build Council properties…

…-to-make-council-buildings-greener Back to contents 14 A circular economy approach will allow assets (equipment, plant, fabric, etc) which still have residual value to be identified, recovered and where possible reused instead of them being disposed of. The reuse of assets will not only lead to cost savings but will reduce the carbon footprint of these assets, as well as saving embodied…
