Next Generation webinar series to share learning from community energy projects
19 May 2020
Launching next month and to mark Community Energy Fortnight (13-28 May 2020), we're kicking off a series of 12 webinars featuring six Next Generation projects and six other innovative community energy initiatiaves. Each 90-minute webinar will feature one of the projects and will be a chance to hear in detail about the progress, challenges and successes and give everyone the opportunity to ask questions and provide a space for learning and problem solving.
First up in the Innovation Lab webinar series on Friday 26 June (10:30–12:00), Brighton Energy Coop will be presenting on their Next Generation funded project that looks at electric vehicle charging as an additional revenue source for large-scale solar. More information about their project can be found on the Next Generation website: www.next-generation.org.uk/grants.
Next Generation aims to create a step-change in the development of genuinely sustainable, financially viable and innovative community businesses, helping to raise the profile of place-based community energy activity with policy-makers and industry. It is funded by Power to Change, and you can read more about it and some of the recipients of the innovation grants here.
The webinars will take place at the rate of one a month from June 2020 to May 2021. They are free and you can register for a many or as few as you like. But you will need to register in advance where there'll be the opportunity to submit questions
There will be a short presentation followed by a question and answer session. Please contact email@example.com if you would like to submit a question beforehand.
