    I am investigating community owned energy schemes in the UK for my MSc dissertation. I was unable to attend this event but would be very interested to find out more about what was discussed. Do you intend to publish a summary document, or are there any slides that can be made available? Many thanks, Will

    • Thanks Will. We’ll put a review of the event up later today. A large document on energy ideas is in the process of being produced in conjunction with the Co-operative Party and LGiU – look out for that in the autumn.
