Devon Energy Collective and Regen are supporting local councils, climate action groups, and community energy organisations to identify new sites for local renewable energy generation – and help to get the very best of these projects up and running. If you have an interest in renewable energy or local development, we want to hear from you.
We believe that successful renewable energy projects are identified by communities for the benefit of communities. We have created an interactive platform that enables people to identify parts of their neighbourhood that could be suitable for an energy project. We will then collect and analyse these sites and prioritise those with the most potential for further studies.
Our aim is that community-owned “Power Allotments” can be built across Devon, generating clean sustainable and local energy and a local income for communities. An opportunity to enhance the biodiversity of these sites could mean that they would also serve as a valuable habitat for native wildlife.
This event is being held to inform key stakeholders across Devon about the project and how it fits in with Devon’s Net Zero targets. We are asking for your help to engage the residents of Devon about the benefits of community energy and to spread the message far and wide.
