The Community Renewables Economy: Starting up, scaling up and spinning out

10th September 2013
  • ResPublica

ResPublica is launching its latest report: ‘The Community Renewables Economy: Starting up, scaling up and spinning out’. Supported by RenewableUK, Co-operative Energy, Airvolution and Infinergy, and drawing on new data based on an independent survey, the Green Paper sets out the potential GW capacity of community energy in the UK, and outlines a series of key barriers to market entry. It concludes with a series of innovative policy recommendations for national and local government, the industry and communities themselves.

The paper looks to feed into DECC’s forthcoming Community Energy Strategy, and the research team has closely engaged with the Energy and Climate Change Committee’s inquiry into Local Energy.

The event will take the format of a 10-minute keynote speech, delivered by the Minister for Energy and Climate Change, Greg Barker MP, followed by a panel discussion during which the paper’s author, practitioners and representatives from across all three major political parties will speak; after this we shall open up the discussion to the delegates.

The launch will be a private event, to which we will be inviting high level representatives from across the industry, charitable sector, Parliament and the media.
