Community Energy Scotland 1Community Energy Scotland has teamed up with Community Energy England and Community Energy Wales write to Amber Rudd MP, the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, in the new Conservative government at Westminster. 

In a single formal letter, the convenors of the three community energy organisations describe the successes of community energy and how community and cooperative renewable energy projects can play a big part in a low carbon and resilient energy generation future for the UK.

The letter – which also requests an early meeting with Rudd – states: ‘The community energy sector has the potential to make a further significant contribution to the UK’s climate change obligations whilst directly helping to strengthen local communities.’

‘Community energy offers an exciting and powerful alternative business model which engages and involves members of the public in ethical business activities with the common purposes of creating renewable energy and strengthening energy security.’
