After the success of previous sessions, Fuelling Manchester 8 comes to Tameside, the gathering is for all those of us involved in community renewable projects, be that: water turbine co-operatives; bio-mass and woodland management enterprises; waste-to-energy projects, solar energy collectives or those involved in community-focused wind turbines.
Except for introductions, the evening has no agenda and no structure, it is simply an opportunity to meet with like-minded individuals and complimentary projects from across Greater Manchester and beyond. To learn, share and make plans.
