Places are still available on our 'Community Energy for Landowners' seminar on 18 October in Birmingham which promises a unique opportunity to explore the challenges and opportunities arising from the growth of community based sustainable energy schemes.
The seminar is aimed at landowning organisations with an interest in promoting community energy, whether as part of their social responsibility or climate reduction targets.
Keith Jones, an environmental advisor for the National Trust with a background in hydro, will present the view of a large landowning organisation with an active interest in community renewables.
John Spencer of Sustainable Oakenshaw will share his community group's experience of working with farmers in finding a site suitable for wind power. And there will also be representatives from the Crown Estate and Forestry Commission in attendance.
The event is free, but please use the booking form.
Below are three films showing examples of successful community energy projects undertaken with the support of different landowners. They focus of woodland management for biomass, hydro and wind power. The films were made by CSE for our PlanLoCaL project:
