March 2012:The CISE (Community Innovation for Sustainable Energy) project hosted an event to assess the impact of recent policy developments on the community energy sector at at UEA London on March 8th 2012. Chaired by Professor Yvonne Rydin (Director of the UCL Environment Institute), a panel of 5 community energy experts were asked to reflect on the following questions:
- How have recent developments in national energy policy affected community energy initiatives?
- Have responses to these policy proposals galvanised and/or unsettled the community energy sector?
- What should be the key priorities looking ahead; who needs to be involved, and how?
A report of the seminar is available on the Low Carbon Communities Network here.
