Renewable energy is making rapid strides. Many households now have their own solar PV, but most renewables are installed and owned by large, distant companies. Challenging this, community energy initiatives are now springing up in many places. They ensure local choices and local control, and allow our towns and villages to reap the financial and employment benefits.

Is community energy the key to decarbonising the UK and accelerating renewable energy?

Join us for fascinating presentations by leading pioneers and practitioners to discuss technology, finance and practical action, followed by panel and audience discussion. Speakers will include:

  • Herbert Girardet, film maker, author, consultant; chair
  • Preben Maegaard, renewable energy pioneer, Denmark
  • Wendy Stephenson, director, The Converging World, Bristol
  • Adam Twine, Westmill Farm, Oxfordshire
  • Peter Head, CBE, civil and structural engineer, London
  • Andy O’Brien, founder-director, Bristol Energy Cooperative
