Carbon Co-op took part in the very successful, Powering Up North conference in February 2015. Jonathan Atkinson spoke from the platform in a key note address on the challenges and opportunities of community-led deployment of whole house retrofit.

Afterwards, Jonathan and Matt Fawcett provided an introduction to community smart grids and the use of open source technology in their deployment.

The conference was fantastically well organised with over 200 attendees from all sectors of the community energy world - including activitsts, support sector organisations, financers and academics.

The heartening thing was that there were so many Carbon Co-op members present in the audience and on stage. The day was rounded off with a Fuelling Manchester social in the near by pub - a great way to finish a very enjoyable and inspiring day!
