Community Energy projects are going from strength to strength in Bristol. The next Bristol Energy Network will bring together community energy groups from across Bristol and the surrounding area to share best practice and information on what they are doing to improve the energy efficiency of the housing stock in their communities, as well as encouraging the uptake of renewable energy production.
The event is free to attend and includes light bites but please register here so we are aware of the numbers!
At the next meeting, the Bristol Energy Network will be hosting an evening of celebration. On Thursday 23rd February, Bristol based community energy groups will have the opportunity to present their winning projects, funded through the Department of Energy and Climate Change’s Leaf* Fund.
For those of us working in the field of energy and sustainability, we have known for sometime that Bristol has been leading the way to reduce energy consumption, CO2 and move to a more sustainable living model. However, for those doubters out there, here’s the proof – 9 community groups from the Bristol area have been awarded funding to carry out projects.
An interactive map of all DECC supported LEAF projects can be found here.
If you’d like to find out more about these projects and what is happening in your city, or your neighbourhood, come to Hamilton House from 7pm on the 23rd February. The evening will cover the following:
- News and progress from the project winners
- Bristol City Council to discuss how they are supporting community energy initiatives in “Bristol Futures & Communities”
- Councillor Gus Hoyt will be introducing a new scheme to multi-purchase Green Energy from suppliers to help tackle fuel poverty and tackle climate change through clean energy
- Draught-busting – a short talk about workshops in your local area
