Powering the economic and environmental future of Britain

Distributed energy solutions are helping UK business and the public sector take control in new exciting ways. Our 2018 'Powering...' series of 10 insightful reports highlight the economic and environmental benefits that organisations can achieve across a range of sectors and regional areas.

We believe distributed energy solutions can help UK businesses and public sector organisations use less energy, improve their performance, increase operational resilience, and access new revenue streams. Which is why in 2018 Centrica undertook two major data-modelling research initiatives to estimate of what the economic and environmental impact to the UK could be if distributed energy solutions were rolled out across three key sectors; industry, healthcare and hospitality & leisure.

Below you will find the complete set of 10 "Powering..." insight reports; providing insight in to the benefits of distributed energy for the above sectors, as well as regional versions for London, Wales, West Midlands, North East UK and Yorkshire & Humberside.
