Marches Energy Agency (MEA) have two exciting pieces of news for anyone interested in local community renewable projects

MEA is very excited to be working with the Centre for Sustainable Energy to run these free events. They will help community groups, individuals and councillors engage with local planning and low-carbon development – and help you understand how you can generate local, renewable energy. If you or your group is interested in community-owned renewables then this is the workshop for you!
It will feature the PlanLoCaL model, a large-scale model of a town demonstrating how renewable energy technologies work, and the PlanLoCaL films, which include case studies and information on how to set up community-owned renewable energy projects. There will be a local keynote speaker at each event to provide a local context.
Interactive, practical sessions will focus on how communities can get involved in local plan making, different kinds of renewable energy technologies, climate change adaptation, community engagement, and funding issues. All community groups represented will receive a comprehensive handout pack, including DVDs.
