Community-led Energy Planning toolkit launched

by Blog

How can we build energy transition capacity in all neighbourhoods? Check out our new toolkit developed with (CLES) Centre for Local Economic Strategies and URBED: http://energyfuturestoolkit.carbon.coop

Community-led Energy Planning (CLEP) is a place-based, community-centred approach to building knowledge, understanding and confidence in lower-income communities to enable them to shape and benefit from the energy transition. 

Using this approach:

  • Allows local people to engage in energy transition planning and action
  • Generates valuable neighbourhood-level data to inform the approach to and delivery of the local energy transition 
  • Enables the activation of community-led and -owned initiatives which can build community wealth as part of the energy transition. 

The toolkit is great for local authorities and other stakeholders involved in energy planning: http://energyfuturestoolkit.carbon.coop
