  • 2. Why MLEI? 28% of Cambridgeshire’s energy needs can be delivered locally from renewables Investment needed: £2 - 6 billion by 2031 o Significant numbers of smaller scale projects driving high transaction costs for investors o Asset owners lack understanding, knowledge and confidence to progress investment o Piecemeal investment into energy infrastructure creates an uncoordinated approach that can prejudice future investment o Investors are focussed narrowly on technology and sectors o Lack of understanding of economic and social value created by investing in the low carbon economy £145 million of investment in energy efficiency measures in non-domestic Buildings by 2030
