Let’s talk Community Energy
Last week was Community Energy fortnight and across the UK, hundreds of groups have come together to work towards a clean, democratically owned supply of energy: ‘Community energy’.
A community energy approach means clean generation that is owned by, and benefits, the local community – and we share this bold vision for the future. In fact, we helped develop it, having installed the very first community-funded installation in Oxford in 2008.
In this interview, Joju Solar’s Co-founder and Technical Director, and Senior Researcher at the Environmental Change Institute at the University of Oxford, Dr Chris Jardine, chats more about Community Energy. We cover why Joju Solar became involved at the very start, more about some of the projects developed and installed and what Chris believes the future holds for Community Energy.
