Community Energy Fortnight 5th – 20th September

During September we try to promote community energy.  This year, two of our operations team will be attending the Community Energy England conference in Oxford on the 5th September, we are holding our AGM and site visit for shareholders on the 9th September and we are giving a talk to the Whitby Civic Society on the 21st September.  Why not see what is on near where you live by visiting the Community Energy Fortnight website.

Peer mentoring fourth workshop and module

The fourth and final peer mentoring workshop was held on 5th March as part of the Community Hydro Forum’s meeting hosted by Stockport Hydro.  We were joined on the day by Emma Bridge, CEO of Community Energy England.  The programme covered updates from the community hydro groups that attend the forum, policy changes and a session looking at the build and commissioning stage of hydro schemes.

Following the workshop, the final e-learning module was developed based on Esk Energy’s experience of the build and commissioning stages.  To access the other three modules in the series visit our peer mentoring page.
