Community Energy London Conference 2019:
COMMUNITY ENERGY IN A CLIMATE EMERGENCY
Thursday June 27, 5.30pm – 9pm
City Hall, London (Committee Room 4 & 5)
Nearly 100 councils across the country have now declared Climate Emergency. In London this includes the boroughs of Greenwich, Lambeth, Newham, Haringey, Ealing, Tower Hamlets, Southwark Waltham Forest, Islington and also the Greater London Authority. In addition, petitions are now in place for similar action in Camden, Hounslow, Croydon ,Merton, Redbridge and Westminster.
Community energy groups across London have been actively working in their areas to deliver innovative carbon reduction and fuel poverty alleviation projects. The Mayor has supported groups through the introduction of the London Community Energy Fund (LCEF) with other 30 projects now under development across the capital – and more projects planned. A further round of funding under the LCEF is anticipated shortly.
Community Energy in a Climate Emergency will explore how councils and communities can work together to deliver energy and climate projects and – set out longer-term strategies to move towards zero carbon.
