Event description

Description

This ‘Community Ownership in Renewable Energy’ workshop event is on the afternoon of Friday 24th November 2017 at the Alexander Graham Bell Centre in Elgin. It is organised by the developers of the proposed Clash Gour Wind Farm (which is adjacent to Berry Burn Wind Farm, which was also developed by the same developer), and supported by Local Energy Scotland. Clash Gour is a major project which is currently in scoping with the Scottish Government for up to 63 turbines. Details of the project are available at www.force9energy.com/projects/current/clash-gour.

This Workshop is for Community Groups in and around Moray who are interested in the possibility of investing in community ownership. Interested groups are asked to nominate one or two representatives to attend. Please note that the event is free, but pre-registration is required. The event starts at 1.15pm, with lunch provided from 12.30pm.

The aim of the event is to give local community groups a solid understanding of:

  • community ownership of renewable energy projects and some of the key financial and practical issues that need to be considered
  • the Clash Gour Wind Farm community ownership opportunity

There will be speakers from Local Energy Scotland and the Scottish Government’s Renewable Energy Investment Fund (‘REIF’) as well as Gordon Cowtan, from Fintry Development Trust, and author of “Community Energy: A guide to community-based renewable energy projects”. As well as a panel of speakers with strong experience of community renewable projects, there will be plenty of opportunity for discussion and questions.

The co-developers of Clash Gour Wind Farm, Force 9 Energy and EDF Energy Renewables, will also provide an overview of the Clash Gour Community Ownership opportunity.
