    Low Carbon Hub is at the heart of a collective effort to catalyse a low carbon economy in Oxfordshire. Our partners in this work include Oxford City Council, Oxfordshire County Council, University of Oxford, Oxford Brookes University and the Local Enterprise Partnership.

    As part of this work, Low Carbon Hub develops innovation pilots around community energy to help the sector expand more rapidly.
