Communities and climate recovery

The move to a decentralised energy system and innovation in renewable energy can all be led by the community. There are many new models being tested by community energy organisations which are paving the way for the energy future.

Drawing on her experience on the board of five community energy groups, Sonya will discuss how these community projects are the future in delivering sustainability and zero carbon solutions. You’ll see examples of renewable energy, housing and transport all being delivered by community groups in this inspiring webinar.
