Kent and Medway Energy and Low Emissions Strategy

Meeting the climate change challenge

Our climate is changing rapidly and the effects are already being felt in Kent and Medway. At the same time, the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is changing the world. However, both present an opportunity to rebuild the county stronger, cleaner and more resilient than before.

Limiting our contribution to global warming, and driving low carbon economic recovery, will undoubtedly be the most urgent issues of this decade.

The Kent and Medway Energy and Low Emissions Strategy sets out how we, in partnership with Medway Council and the Kent district councils, will respond to the UK climate emergency and drive clean, resilient economic recovery across the county.

Using an evidence based approach, the strategy identifies 10 priority actions to:

  • promote the development of an affordable, clean and secure energy supply for the county
  • reduce greenhouse gas emissions
  • eliminate poor air quality
  • reduce fuel poverty.
