How collaboration plays a vital role in our work

What is the Energy Capital Partnership?

It brings stakeholders together across the West Midlands committed to the energy transition required to meet our net zero ambitions.

Partners contribute to achieving this transition in a range of ways, according to their expertise and capacity, including:

  • Attending Energy Collaboration Days
  • Respond to consultations on our outputs
  • Collaborating to secure further funding for the region

We are not a legal partnership structure. Being a partner does not give an organisation preferential treatment in commercial decisions.

A just energy transition, where investment is appropriately channelled to meet the needs of our diverse communities, enables timely decarbonisation and creates a thriving market for clean-technological innovation and economic growth.

Join the Partnership

We are looking to expand our partnership. If you share our vision and are willing to collaborate with us in a variety of ways, then please use this email address to contact us.
