Green recovery

Green recovery

Electricity North West is bringing forward more than £20 million of investment to provide immediate support for projects which will drive a green recovery from Covid-19.

The investment is part of Ofgem’s Green Recovery scheme, launched to kick start the recovery by speeding up the delivery of shovel-ready projects.


We first announced we had identified a number of possible projects in February, when we launched a public consultation to help it prioritise £15m of investments across the region.


Following that consultation, we have now brought forward a further £5m in investment so that we can deliver a total of 11 projects, all geared to helping the region hit its net zero carbon targets. 


See below the full list of projects.
