Community Energy England and Co-op Energy once again teamed up to deliver the country's largest and most thought-provoking community energy conference of the year. The conference kicked off Community Energy Fortnight and saw the launch of the much anticipated second State of the Sector Report.

After the success of last year, the event again took place at Renold Building, University of Manchester.

The conference was jointly hosted with Co-op Energy and supported by Electricity North West and Tyndall Centre
