The council is exploring opportunities to use its land for renewable energy projects to generate money.

Derbyshire County Council recently hosted an energy collaboration seminar at County Hall, in Matlock, which other local authorities attended to look at the potential of transforming former industrial land for energy projects.

The event was organised through the Association for Public Service Excellence which is a not for profit local government body which helps local authorities improve services, in association with the Town and Country Planning Association and the Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire Local Authorities Energy Partnership. Over the next year the council will look at identifying land it owns which could be used.
