CSE's Chief Executive, Simon Roberts, said: “The event provided a great opportunity to share what we have already learned and explore possible approaches to Green Deal and low carbon refurbishment in the future. It’s clear from the feedback that people found it really useful and are keen to be involved in our work in this area as it develops.

"We look forward to building on this event and to deepening our collective understanding of the best ways to creating viable, locally beneficial provision of the Green Deal.”

Evening event for communities

On the same day, in the evening, we jointly hosted (with Bristol Energy Network) an event specifically for community group representatives. In the context of what the Green Deal offers community energy groups and social enterprises, we explored what the Green Deal is, what it will mean for householders, and how the scheme could best be implemented.
