This conference will discuss future prospects for the development of localised energy policies and next steps for supporting community and cooperative ownership of energy generating infrastructure. It takes place in the context of the Government’s announcements in the Clean Growth Strategy of the launch of a Local Energy programme with the aim of supporting the delivery of the Smart System Plan, a Local Energy Contact Group that builds on the Community Energy Contact Group, and of increased support for LEPs in this area. Delegates will discuss the potential implications of publicly owned energy providers across the UK.
