Can community owned, green energy cooperatives be part of the solution to the UK’s energy challenge?

Join us to debate the exciting rising phenomenon of community energy ownership in the UK

In this age of escalating fuel prices and imported gas and oil, could green community energy cooperatives play an important part in achieving a low-carbon, energy independent future for the UK? How realistic is this and what's holding us back in comparison to Scandinavia and Germany, where community energy is a long established, effective part of the energy mix? What's the potential to make this an increasingly urban phenomenon?

Join us to debate this exciting topic and hear from people on the front line of this expanding UK sector, such as Brixton Energy, the UK's first urban energy cooperative and Southern Solar, leading installers of both solar PV and thermal systems in Southern England, and Energise Barnet, who facilitate mass take-up of energy saving measures and renewables in London's largest borough.
