Community Energy Strategy

February 2013: Energy and Climate Secretary of State Ed Davey said during DECC questions in the House of Commons earlier this week that the Government  ?will introduce later this year the most ambitious community energy strategy this country has ever seen, and we will consult on it before we finalise it?We have a rather more ambitious approach to community energy than the previous Government ever had.? As highlighted in previous posts (here and here), a Community Energy Contact Group has been formed to advise DECC on the drafting of the strategy- details of the CECG can be viewed here.

The Community Energy Coalition published a Manifesto for Community Energy late last year which sets out some very good recommendations to Government on what the strategy should include as a minimum. Read the Manifesto here.
