25th June 2013

Topic(s): Renewables, Public engagement, Social research, Policy, law and regulation, Domestic policy

If community energy in the UK is to contribute to a shifting energy mix towards decarbonisation, it requires imaginative policy support, recognition of its distinctiveness as an innovative sector (rather than attempts to make it fit the commercial ‘innovation’ mould), and appropriate support and resources. Community energy groups can be an influential and diverse force for change if supported effectively and empowered appropriately.
