Community energy organisations across the UK have shown that local energy will continue to play a role in our rapidly changing energy system. As we transition to a decentralised energy future, it is important to grasp the opportunities to increase participation and keep up to date with the latest innovations and business models.
This event, held by Western Power Distribution and Regen, will provide a forum to continue the collaboration, learning and networking that is fundamental to community energy projects. We will look at the latest intelligence from projects happening on the ground and find out more about the changes in our energy system. We will hear from the most advanced communities and learn about the emerging value from new flexibility markets.
Western Power Distribution will also be on hand to update us on the latest innovation projects and the transition to a Distribution System Operator and what this will mean to community energy organisations. They will also provide feedback on their recent consultation, asking community groups how they wish to participate in this fundamental shift.
