We're mapping Oxford and Oxfordshire's journey to 100% clean energy by 2050.
Oxford City, Oxfordshire County Council, businesses and community groups are creating an unstoppable movement for clean energy - a smarter way of powering our economy, our neighbourhoods and our homes.
Explore the map to find what’s happening near you and how you can take part.
All around us people are making smarter, cleaner decisions about how they use and generate energy. From installing electric vehicle charging points to solar arrays on the top of shopping centres, our country is gradually weaning itself of fossil fuels.
But some of this is invisible and many small efforts can be hidden. So UK100 is supporting local leaders in our network to map their progress to 100% clean energy. The local council, the community and businesses - we can all show our actions and demonstrate how we are working to achieve the same goal, a country no longer dependent on dirty energy.
The Local Power Map is an online tool that can show the impact of clean energy actions in your local authority area. From EV car clubs, cleaner buses and taxis, to district heating, hydro projects and energy efficiency measures in cold homes, our efforts all add up.
Clean energy is not just good for the planet; it can save us money, generate income, create jobs and growth and promote health and wellbeing.
Mapping progress will help leaders make the right decisions and all of us to reach our goal.
Recent generation data: Where available, we have displayed the actual generation data from recent days.
People powered: to calculate this, we divide the total energy consumption by Oxfordshire’s domestic, commercial and industrial sectors (excluding transport), by the current population, giving a figure that represents a per capita share of Oxfordshire’s direct energy use.
CO 2 intensity: We use the average grid carbon intensity factor for generation, transmission and distribution expressed as CO2 equivalent. For 2017 this was 0.38443 KgCO2e/kWh
Energy consumption: Our comparative data figures are based on the following assumptions and sources.
- Toaster 1200W toaster taking three minutes to make two slices of toast.
- Kettle 1800W kettle taking three minutes to boil a litre of water.
- LED TV Based on a 115W TV
- Fridge (p51)Assuming 0.5kWh energy consumption a day
