Following the success of it's 2013 and 2014 national events, Co-operative Energy is pleased to announce its Community Energy Conference 2015. This year’s event is titled ‘New Government, New Dawn’ and will be jointly hosted with Community Energy England. The Conference will also be the marque launch event for Community Energy Fortnight 2015, which is also sponsored by Co-operative Energy. The UK’s nascent community energy revolution picked up pace through 2014 and the early part of 2015, but what will be the impact of the emergence of a new Government? The UK’s Community Energy Strategy has recently been revitalised, but what will be the influence of changes to investor tax relief and the new approach of the FCA? More broadly, the EU is now progressing with its new Energy Union strategy which has the citizen at its centre, but will EU State Aid Guidelines restrict national support mechanisms? These and other questions will be explored at what has become the UK’s largest and most exciting annual gathering of community energy practitioners. Moreover, this year’s event will be free to attend (including lunch and refreshments) to ensure that as many communities as possible can enjoy access to an unparalleled range of speakers and interactive sessions.
