Success factors in community energy

Why do some communities get their renewables project idea up and running while others don't? Our new report identifies the social factors that are key to success for community energy projects. It looks at the various stages of development, from idea to operation.

The Scottish Government has a target of 500 megawatts of community and locally-owned renewable energy by 2020. Alongside our new report we are supporting the Government's efforts through workshops and by coordinating research on community energy in Scotland.

A network of expertise

No-one knows the British climate like the Met office. So we are constantly improving how we work with them, most recently at a two-day workshop to look at policy case studies and how to better share knowledge, data and analysis.

The Met Office is only one of our many partners - from those working on practical actions to adapt to the impacts of climate change, to other networks of academics such as the UK Energy Research Centre.

Policy makers, academics and practitioners need to come up with innovative solutions to some of the big challenges from climate change.

At ClimateXChange we specialise in creating the dialogues that exchange knowledge between all involved.
