The Energy Transition: Top down versus grassroots (Bristol)

Our CEO, AListair will be presenting at this fantastic conference!

As part of Green Great Britain week, you are invited to an afternoon at the Arnolfini, Bristol to explore how taking control of energy has helped communities respond to local challenges and deliver social and economic benefits to their neighbourhoods. 10 years on from the Climate Change Act, this conference will focus on how communities, organisations and local authorities can work together more effectively to tackle fuel poverty and climate change.

Bristol Energy Network and Bristol City Council Energy Service are delighted to host a range of speakers to showcase the best community and local energy case studies in the South-West. These will demonstrate how local municipal and political engagement and community energy expertise has combined with the mobilisation of local assets to create the engagement structures and governance needed for community-controlled energy projects to tackle climate change and increase understanding of low carbon energy transitions.

Who is the event for? This is for you if you have an interest in social and economic resilience, health and wellbeing, poverty or community energy; whether you are from a community organisation, local authority, energy company; a local, regional or national NGO, or if you are a funding organisation.

Speakers include Will Walker (Power to Change), Patrick Allcorn (BEIS), Peter Capener (BWCE), Alistair Macpherson (PEC), Jodie Giles (REGEN), Paul Hassan (Locality), Rachel Coxcoon (Centre for Sustainable Energy), Simon Proctor (Bristol Energy Ltd) and David Tudgey (BEN).
