Community Energy Plus
Not-for-profit community groups in Cornwall were invited to ‘power-up’ with the skills they need to build their membership and enjoy the environmental, social and financial benefits of delivering green energy projects thanks to a pioneering new training programme.
The “Powering-up Communities” programme offered a series of six workshops on a range of subjects, from setting up a group right through to raising funds to bring a renewable energy project to fruition.
The programme was delivered by Community Energy Plus, supported by Kabin – the independent Co-operative development body for Cornwall.
In addition to the workshops, experts from both organisations provided mentoring support tailored to the needs of participating groups – whatever their stage of development.
