Project duration: November 2019 – January 2020
Regen worked with Electricity North West (ENWL) to produce an internal report analysing ambitious ideas for how they can better support community energy organisations in their licence area. This report will be used to enhance the business case for further specific actions that ENWL will take to help the community energy movement grow and thrive in the next RIIO price control period (2023-2028).
ENWL want to help deliver a strong and self-sustaining community energy movement in the North West, so Regen supported them to gather evidence, feedback and insight on the ideas, which had evolved from community energy engagement, and internal discussions with the ENWL team. Feedback came from a workshop of key community and local energy stakeholders and interviews with community energy representatives, supplemented by Regen’s extensive experience supporting the community energy movement over the past 8 years.
