What we want to achieve
Energy Superhub Oxford (ESO) aims to eliminate 10,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions a year. That’s the equivalent of taking 2,000 cars off the road.
We will do this by installing a very large, hybrid battery energy storage system, enabling more clean electricity, encouraging the uptake of electric vehicles (EVs) in Oxford, including the electrification of the Council’s own fleet of vehicles, and by implementing electric heating in homes and businesses.
As a key part of Oxford City Council’s response to the climate emergency, ESO will provide a model for cities around the world to cut carbon and improve air quality.
We aim to reduce Oxford’s CO2 emissions by 10,000 tonnes per year. That’s the equivalent of taking 2,000 petrol or diesel powered cars off the road.
Who we are
ESO is a consortium of six partners, led by Pivot Power, and including public, business and academic organisations, all working together to lower Oxford’s carbon emissions and clean up its air. Follow the links below to find out more about the partners.
