Talking finance - funding and revenues for Community Energy projects

24/06/2021 12:30 – 13:45

If the UK is to reduce emissions by 78% by 2030 as the government has promised, our energy system needs to continue to transform at an exponential rate. Community Energy has a vital part to play to ensure the transition is just, giving everyone the opportunity to take a stake and ensuring the economic and environmental rewards stay local.

Market realities continue to evolve and we need to respond. Join us to explore ways that community energy groups can secure revenues and finance new projects. Take part in a discussion with the experts who are making it happen.
