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
