Innovation in Community Energy - Conference 2013
5th and 6th November 2013
Location: Glasgow at Partick Burgh Halls
Our conference Innovation in Community Energy clearly demonstrated that community-led projects are in the vanguard of change to secure a brighter energy future for Scotland. Over 200 delegates learnt of successes in communities at home and abroad and how we can use new technologies to provide the heat and power needed for our homes and businesses.
Our Chief Executive, Nicholas Gubbins, also announced Community Energy Scotland’s next steps in community energy innovation, that is developing the concept of Local Energy Economies. “We are now working up a longer term programme of support which will drive a high level of community ownership and control of local energy generation and use” announced Nicholas.
Innovation in the use of technology was a recurring theme of the conference, as well as wider energy security.
