Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council receives £6,591,000 of HNIP funding!

In October 2019, Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council recognised a climate emergency and voted unanimously to ensure that the Council’s own activities are carbon-neutral by 2030. In addition, the Council is working closely with the West Midlands Combined Authority towards meeting the region’s wider target of ‘net-zero emissions’ by 2041. More than a year earlier they had embarked on a mission to deliver affordable, low carbon heat to homes and businesses in the town centre. We are pleased to share that the Council has successfully secured £6,591,000 of Heat Networks Investment Project (HNIP) grant funding to support the commercialisation and construction phases of the Solihull Town Centre Low Carbon Energy Network. This is excellent news for Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council! Read the full story here.
