Leanne Wilson

Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy

I have worked on climate change, renewable energy and wider sustainability issues for the past 15 years, including a number of international programmes such as the Netherlands Climate Assistance Programme and the Africa Biogas Initiative. I have previously coordinated the Tees Valley Climate Change Partnership that included Darlington Borough Council, Hartlepool Borough Council, Middlesbrough Council, Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council and Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council in addition to a range of other public sector stakeholders. I recently completed my PhD in Human Geography at Northumbria University. My research was based in Newcastle upon Tyne and focused on adapting to climate change within the context of social vulnerability. I am currently an Innovation and Technology Officer at Tees Valley Combined Authority and have coordinated the North East Yorkshire and Humber Local Energy hub since July 2018. This includes Humber LEP, Leeds City Region/West Yorkshire Combined Authority, North East LEP, Sheffield City Region, Tees Valley Combined Authority and York, North Yorkshire and East Riding LEP. It is one of five Local Energy Hubs across England that are funded by the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy to accelerate the delivery of low carbon energy projects by collaboration and sharing best practise. Each Local Enterprise Partnership in England has either developed an Energy Strategy, or is in the process of developing one and we are currently identifying common objectives within our energy strategies so that we can effectively work together. Energy efficiency and fuel poverty are vital components of our energy strategies and we actively welcome discussions about projects or project ideas that we could potentially support.
