Would you like to learn more about renewable energy? How it works and how communities can use it to improve the local economy?
Energise Sussex Coast is facilitating a workshop on renewable energy on Thursday 29th March, from 10am – 12pm, St Leonards.
In this module, you will explore the different types of renewable technologies and how they work. You will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of solar photovoltaic, micro and small-wind turbines and microhydro electricity and the factors to consider before installing a renewable electricity technology.
You will look at the potential in Hastings and how a community energy ownership model would work.
As with all our workshops, this is a participatory workshop and a chance for us to learn from each other. Energise Sussex Coast would be very interested in people that have installed renewable technologies or are interested in doing so to participate in the workshop.
To book your free place visit the Energise Sussex Coast website.
This workshop is funded by the EU SHINE project.
The 1066 Local Energy Campaign is delighted to announce its partnership with the Brighton Energy Coop (BEC). BEC will be the delivery partner for our community solar energy installation projects for large roofs (600m2 +). For smaller solar arrays we are busy setting up a new energy Co-op which will take these forward.
BEC bring their years of experience and success in setting up community energy projects and will mean that we benefit from the tried and tested systems they have in place for investors. So far BEC has raised £1,432,000 for investment in 22 community energy projects and pay their investors a 5% interest on investment. This means we can progress our Hastings projects quickly before the feed in tariff runs out next year!
