Be sure to come and share your views on the future development of community energy projects in Wales and help to influence the vision and thinking behind the Welsh Government's 'Future Generations Bill', so that it helps to deliver the 'Wales We Want'. 

The event will also see the launch of the new Community Energy Funddeveloped by Robert Owen Community Banking in association with the BIG Lottery Fund. The fund is designed to assist community groups to take forward their community renewable aspirations by providing a source of solidarity finance that can cover the pre-installation cost of schemes - effectively taking away the financial risks associated with development without impacting on the 'Feed in Tariff' or 'Renewable Heat Incentive' payments that make schemes viable. 

To register your attendance at the event simply send an e-mail to[email protected] confirming that you will be there. Please advice of any special dietary requirements at the same time.
