B&NES Community Energy Forum

The B&NES Community Energy Forum is an informal meeting for community groups interested in / working on energy related projects from across Bath and North East Somerset. This forum will be an opportunity to catch up with each other’s plans and projects, find out what the Council is doing, discuss ideas, and plan for the future.
This event coincides with Community Energy Fortnight 3rd – 18th September 2016 which aims to showcase inspiring examples of communities who are generating their own renewable energy, or are helping to reduce energy usage locally. The theme of the fortnight is Powering Forward with the aim of encouraging discussion around the way forward for community energy in the face of recent policy and support changes.
