The Humber region is a place with energy.

Let's use that energy to change the world.

A clean energy
revolution starts here.

  • A place with opportunity

    The Humber region is ideally placed to benefit from new opportunities through the diversification of the energy market, creating 1000s of new jobs and generating multi million pound GVA.

  • A place with innovation.

    Technology developed in the Humber will protect the region against flooding and lead the world in the fight against climate change.

  • A place with experience

    The Energy Estuary has already created 5000 jobs and we’re home to some of the world’s leading researchers in energy and environmental matters.

  • A place with energy

    We have the largest concentration of energy intensive industries in the country and produce up to 25% of the UK’s energy.

Energy Estuary 2.0 is a programme of activity that will transform the Humber region by building on the successful clean energy projects that have already been developed in the Energy Estuary.

By bringing together our strengths in green energy, we can develop new technologies that will shape the fight against climate change, fuelling economic growth by making the region a magnet for future investment. These technologies will change the way we consume and generate energy.

There’s never been a more important time to do this. The UK target for net zero carbon emissions by 2050 makes it critical that energy intensive industries such as those in the Humber become carbon neutral in order to avoid economic decline.

"We believe clean growth can be delivered by diversifying and growing the energy economy, whilst finding new ways to capture local benefit from the energy that is being generated here. This has been at the heart of the LEP’s thinking in the Local Industrial Strategy and could be a huge opportunity to fuel further economic growth in the region"

Kishor Tailor, CEO of the Humber LEP

Energy Estuary 2.0 is an ongoing programme of activity that is transforming the Humber region by building on the successful clean energy projects that have already been developed.

To accelerate this transformation, a powerful consortium of 40 regional companies and organisations has submitted a multi million pound bid to the Government’s Strength in Places fund.

The Long term aims of Energy Estuary 2.0 is to generate 1,000s of jobs and multi million pound GVA.

The Energy Estuary 2.0 programme is a core part of the Humber LEP Local Industrial Strategy (LIS) which is currently being negotiated with government, with an aim to accelerate innovation in Clean Energy, whilst protecting Energy Intensive Industries.
