Event description

Description

The government is signalling a more market led approach to renewables and the regulatory framework that has underpinned the growth of community energy over the past decade is changing. What will these changes mean for the development and direction of community energy over the next ten years?

We will be discussing this question and the ideas outlined in our new report Community Energy 2.0 which we will be launching at the event, alongside a Community Energy Manifesto signed by a wide range of organisations.


Expert panellists:

  • Emma Bridge, CEO of Community Energy England
  • Mark Shelford, Conservative councillor at Bath & North East Somerset Council
  • Colin Baines, Investment Engagement Manager, Friends Provident Foundation
  • Charlie Edwards, Manager at SAVE Project, SSE Networks

Chaired by Dr Rebecca Willis, Green Alliance associate and chair, IGov project, University of Exeter

Guest speaker: an MP to be confirmed

The debate will be followed by a drinks reception.

This event is for community energy groups, businesses, NGOs, think tanks, academia and government. Please share the invitation with any senior colleagues or contacts you think might be interested in this discussion.
