After all of the AGMs were complete, members and attendees chatted over light refreshments, browsed the fantastic solar art works by PEC Pals on display and even had the chance to get creative by making moths for a new art project, ‘Moths to a Flame’.

CEO Alistair wowed the audience with impressive impact stats of how our Energy Team have helped residents of Plymouth over the last year. More than just figures, it’s the personal stories that show the life-changing impact the team have. In addition, Alistair shared the year’s frustrations and achievements, again emphasising how dynamic the organisation must be in this ever changing landscape to maximise change for the good of our community and environment. He explained the rise in consciousness around the climate emergency and new ventures into heating innovation and community-led housing.

Addressing the climate emergency and transitioning to a zero carbon energy system requires creative, novel solutions, Art and Energy CIC are bursting with them! Artists Chloe, Jenny and Naomi give the audience an inspiring insight into the power of creativity, showing examples of what’s possible from around the world (and Devon!), how PEC Pals have been working on solar art installations and different ways to participate through projects that make energy and imagine a better future.

Matt Harvey, poet extraordinaire, shared some of his passionately entertaining poems inspired by renewable energy before closing the evening perfectly with a clever tune from his musical SWIMBY.
