Abstract The Spatial Energy Plan for Greater Manchester Combined Authority project was commissioned as part of the Energy Technologies Institute (ETI) Smart Systems and Heat Programme and undertaken through collaboration between the Greater Manchester Combined Authority and the Energy Systems Catapult. The study has consolidated the significant data and existing evidence relating to the local energy system to provide a platform for future energy planning in the region and the development of suitable policies within the emerging spatial planning framework for Greater Manchester.

The Greater Manchester Spatial Framework (GMSF) provides the overarching framework to manage the supply of land across the conurbation for the period to 2035. It aims to identify particular strengths and opportunities, highlighting the barriers and ensuring growth is supported by good quality, low carbon infrastructure.

Greater Manchester has set an ambitious near term local carbon reduction target to cut emissions by 48 % from a 1990 baseline. The GMSF growth projections forecast a significant increase in population which will impact on its energy systems, residents and businesses. To ensure that this growing demand is managed while meeting its low carbon targets, Greater Manchester needs to adopt a whole systems approach, to energy that will improve energy efficiency in buildings, and support decarbonisation of heat and power that reflects the opportunities and constraints of the local area.

This study has been prepared as an evidence base to support the GMSF. It assesses the current and future energy demand and existing energy systems within Greater Manchester, and provides a simple high level overview of the opportunities and challenges for low carbon transition overthe lifetime of the GMSF to 2035, and ultimately beyond to 2050.
