Our Insight Briefing examines the UK Infrastructure Bank's (UKIB) Local Authority Lending and Advisory Service.

UK100 has been working in partnership with organisations including E3G, the Energy Systems Catapult (ESC), Pollination Group and the UK Cities Climate Investment Commission (CCIC), to develop recommendations for the UK Infrastructure Bank’s (UKIB) local authority (LA) lending capacity and advisory service to accelerate the rate of local place-based Net Zero investment by UK LAs.

We believe that the UKIB has a key role to play in helping to address the capacity building and funding constraints faced by LAs. Its advisory service must work closely with its LA lending capacity to help LAs develop large scale investment programmes that can attract private capital to deliver the pace of investment that is needed to deliver the UK’s Net Zero objectives.

This report explores the UKIB's LA Lending and Advisory Service and make recommendations for UKIB to accelerate the rate of local place-based Net Zero investment by UK LAs.
