Inovation Pilots Case Study
The OxFutures programme, led by Oxford City Council, Oxfordshire County Council and key delivery partner, social enterprise, Low Carbon Hub was a four year programme. Its aim was to mobilise large-scale investment to develop renewable energy and energy efficiency projects across the city and county. Through its implementation we have positioned Oxfordshire at the forefront of low carbon innovation and leading the UK’s transition to a sustainable energy future.
The programme was kick-started by a grant from Intelligent Energy Europe to leverage investment of £18 million into local energy projects by the end of 2016.
This is the start of our journey to make low carbon economic development mainstream and to bring £400 million of investment into Oxfordshire by 2020. OxFutures will secure the City of Oxford’s target to reduce its carbon emissions by 40% by 2020, and to reach the Oxfordshire County Council target of a 50% reduction in carbon emissions by 2030, based on 2008 levels.

- £14m of renewable and energy efficiency projects have been directly delivered through the Oxfutures programme
- 3,500 tonnes of CO2 saved a year
- £12m of projects are identified in our project pipeline
By making renewable energy schemes a reality in Oxfordshire, we can inspire others across the UK and Europe to do the same.
