As part of People’s Day of Green Great Britain week, Bristol Energy Network and Bristol City Council Energy Service hosted a conference in Bristol. The conference explored how taking control of energy has helped communities respond to local challenges and deliver social and economic benefits to their neighbourhoods. 10 years on from the Climate Change Act, we focussed on how communities, organisations and local authorities can work together more effectively to tackle fuel poverty and climate change.

We hosted a range of speakers to showcase the best community and local energy case studies in the South-West and from energy companies, local authorities, and national policy makers and influencers. Please click on the links below for the speakers slides that were displayed at the conference:

This event was jointly hosted by Bristol City Council and Bristol Energy Network; sponsored by Power to ChangeBristol Energy Ltd and supported by Community Energy England and the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS).
