What could community energy look like in the future and how can networks support it?

Helen will be chairing the Community Energy Forum at ENIC where we will be sharing case studies of collaborations between community energy organisations and energy network operators, followed by a panel on what community energy could look like in the future and how the networks can support it. We will be discussing and debating poignant issues including:

  • Why is collaboration with communities important for network operators and net zero?
  • Making the economic model work for community energy initiatives, how can network operators help?
  • How can community energy organisations get meaningfully involved in network operators’ innovation programmes?
