Leeds Climate Commission Project Development and Finance Initiative

Leeds has taken the pioneering step to establish the Leeds Climate Commission to help shape its transition to a resource efficient and climate resilient city. Its members are drawn from 25 of the city’s key public, private and third sector organisations.

The Commission’s analysis highlights enormous potential to pursue cost effective low carbon measures. But it also highlights the challenges faced in developing the business case for investment in energy efficiency and low carbon projects and in linking to relevant sources of finance.

We have therefore established a special initiative to work with local organisations to help with the identification and evaluation of projects, with the preparation of business models and cases for investment, and to link organisations with potential investors.

The launch event for this special initiative will:

- showcase the experiences of organisations that have secured investment for energy and low carbon projects;

- present key insights from organisations with experience in project identification and development;

- explore different business models and financing arrangements;

- set out the perspectives of different investors working in the field of green finance;

- provide opportunities for networking;

- introduce and invite participation in the next stages in the Leeds Climate Commission’s special initiative on project development and financing.

Some of our speakers and panel members:

-Professor Andy Gouldson, Chair of Leeds Climate Commission; Professor of Environmental Policy, University of Leeds

-David Kilduff, Chair of Leeds Climate Commission’s Project Development and Finance Initiative; Partner, Walker Morris LLP

-Mike Dunn, Founding Director and co owner of Iona Capital Limited

-Richard Knights, Associate Director, Utility & Energy Consultant, ARUP
