Carbon Coop’s EnergyShare application

Please support the Carbon Coop’s application to EnergyShare – it just takes a few minutes!

We are very excited to announce the Carbon Coop’s submission to the innovative Energyshare programme and I am writing to ask for your support, by voting for our bid, to help us start putting co-operatively owned solar panels on our City’s roofs.

The Carbon Co-op is hoping to secure support and funding (up to £100,000) through the programme.

Community Green Deal report

Carbon Co-op partner URBED recently launched their Community Green Deal report at a major conference in West Bromwich on the 1st December 2010.

The report, funded by Sustainable Housing Action Partnership (SHAP), Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) and Travis Perkins, presents the findings of work to develop a model for community-scale delivery of whole house retrofit.

Carbon Co-op are currently using this model to role out a mechanism for delivering household retro-fit that will benefit from the profitability gained from renewable energy installations.
