Concerned about your energy costs (Heat, power and/or transport)?
Interested in understanding the future of our local energy systems and how they could benefit your business? 

SevernNet is a partner in the Innovate UK funded Bristol Energy Smart System Transformation (BESST) initiative focused on Avonmouth and Severnside. It aims to create groups of smart energy businesses across the area.

We’re keen for businesses across the area, big and small, to get involved. This is an opportunity to understand more about the transforming energy market and how you could benefit e.g. can the area’s growing renewable energy generation lead to local tariffs? Is there a market for exchanging heat? Can we lead the way in utilising locally produced bio-methane as a transport fuel?

You can participate by completing our Energy Survey which you can download here. We’ll provide a summary report of the survey findings and the workshop conclusions to anyone completing the survey.

If you’d prefer to complete the survey face to face let us know and we can arrange an appointment.

You can also join our Smart Energy Forum. This will be an online Forum, with an opportunity to meet face to face periodically. If you’d like to join the Forum please email

Previous engagement has included two Smart Energy workshops held in May and our launch at Jan. 19’s Business Breakfast. More information will be available shortly.
