Prospering from the energy revolution

Powering Oxford to a net zero future

Energy Superhub Oxford is one of the UK’s most ambitious urban decarbonisation projects to date, pioneering an integrated approach to decarbonising power, transport and heat to help Oxford reach net zero by 2040.

The project showcases a powerful network of rapid electric vehicle charging, battery storage, low carbon heating and smart energy management technologies.

The aim is to transform how people power their lives, from travelling to work to heating their homes, and make sure all of Oxford’s citizens prosper from the energy revolution.

It is one of three national demonstrator projects part-funded by UKRI to showcase the benefits of smart, local energy systems, providing a blueprint for towns and cities across the UK to cut carbon emissions and improve air quality.

While the impact of Energy Superhub Oxford’s low carbon infrastructure will be felt for decades, the project formally ran from April 2019 to March 2023. Read the final report to understand more about the project’s goals, barriers, successes, insights and lessons learnt.
