We believe distributed energy solutions can help UK businesses and public sector organisations use less energy, improve their performance, increase operational resilience, and access new revenue streams. Which is why in 2018 Centrica undertook two major data-modelling research initiatives to estimate of what the economic and environmental impact to the UK could be if distributed energy solutions were rolled out across three key sectors; industry, healthcare and hospitality & leisure.
Below you will find the complete set of 10 "Powering..." insight reports; providing insight in to the benefits of distributed energy for the above sectors, as well as regional versions for London, Wales, West Midlands, North East UK and Yorkshire & Humberside.
In this research report, commissioned by Centrica, a team of independent economists has assessed the scale of the opportunity across the industrial manufacturing; healthcare; and hospitality, hotel & leisure industries.
The report highlights the opportunity for key sectors in the UK economy to achieve almost £1bn of savings on annual energy spend, deliver 270,000 jobs, and create a £18.5bn boost to the country’s overall economic growth.

In this report, our in-depth research and modelling reveals the carbon emission reduction benefits of distributed energy solutions to the Industrial Manufacturing, Health and Hospitality & Leisure industries.
The report highlights cumulative savings of 137MtCO₂e through to 2030; or the equivalent of eradicating the annual emissions of the UK's 27 million homes.
Three industry-specific reports layout in greater detail the potential benefits from distributed energy technology and solutions.
A range of five regional reports look at the economic benefits of energy solutions across the UK.
