Community Energy Conference - Part One


Our Annual Community Energy Conference took a new form for 2020. Due to COVID19, we took the event online.

You can see it here and see the notes and write up here and the video from the event here.

This was the event for Community Energy Fortnight and looked at ways the sector can #HarnessOurPower to Build Back Better. We asked our members what topics they wanted to know more about and we created a half-day conference that explored.

  • How to work with Local Authorities
  • New markets
  • The State of the Sector Report
  • The Community Energy Vision
  • International context and inspiration

And we heard from...

  • Emma Bridge, Community Energy England
  • Tom Hoines, Co-op Community Energy
  • Dirk Vansintjan, RESCoop
  • Helen Seagrave, Electricity North West
  • Syed Ahmed, Community Energy London & Liz Ainslie, Islington Council
