Community Energy Fortnight Lobbying Pack 2017
This year Community Energy Fortnight is linking up with the Speak Up! Week of Action to showcase community energy initiatives across the country and to demonstrate how community energy is helping to create a clean and secure future for your local area. To make the most of this opportunity, Community Energy England and 10:10 have produced this lobbying guide to support community energy organisations in engaging with their local politicians.
With a newly elected parliament, we have an exciting opportunity to demonstrate the impact that community energy can have and also what the sector needs to grow and reach its full potential. We are asking community energy groups to invite your MP to events during the Fortnight or to visit your MP’s surgery. MPs hold regular meetings in their local area called surgeries, so you can meet them without organising an event. To find out when and where these are held, visit your MP’s website. Find out who your MP is here.
