You are invited to ‘Celebrate Peer Power’ on Thursday 10 September 10.30 – 3.30pm in Manchester. This FREE event is open to community energy generation groups and celebrates the learning from the Energy Mentoring programme as well as an opportunity to learn from experienced practitioners (mentors). It will particularly benefit those groups at the early stage of setting up their community energy group and developing their project. The event takes place during Community Energy Fortnight 2015 (5-20 September)

This will be an informal event and you can help shape its design by selecting the topics you would like to learn more about and include:

  • Early start up, business model, incorporation, governance
  • Raising finance through a community share offer, community engagement, other funding sources
  • Site finding, initial assessment / feasibility; working with local authorities
  • Financial forecasting / modelling, FITs, RHI, tax relief
  • Planning, licenses, grid connection, leases, tenders, installation, direct supply

The event will be attended by the experienced mentor practitioners who have been supporting groups.
