Have your say on Gloucestershire’s new energy strategy – 9 October

21 September 2018

A new energy strategy is being developed for Gloucestershire, setting out how the county can contribute fully to the national shift to a very low carbon, affordable and resilient energy system while maximising the benefits for local businesses and citizens.

CSE is leading the strategy development, with support from GFirst (the Local Enterprise Partnership), Gloucestershire County Council and members of the GFirst Energy Business Group.

And there’s a chance for people and businesses in the county to have their say. As part of the strategy development process, we are holding a stakeholder workshop on the afternoon of Tuesday 9 October 2018 at SGS Berkeley Green (postcode: GL13 9PA).

The workshop will give stakeholders from across the county a unique opportunity to shape the development of the energy strategy. It will offer stakeholders a chance to (a) contribute their knowledge of what's already happening in the county and the local strengths and weaknesses which the strategy must take into account, and (b) explore the challenges which need to be overcome for the county to succeed in securing an economically-rewarding sustainable energy future.

CSE’s Chief Executive, Simon Roberts, who is leading the work, is clear about the importance of stakeholder engagement and said: “Alongside setting out a clear picture of a sustainable energy future for Gloucestershire, the new strategy has to start from what is already going on and acknowledge both the strengths and weaknesses across the county. But above all, it needs to be understood and shaped by people with a stake in its future success.”
