Dear Friends,

I attach the draft note of the decisions and actions from the Community Energy Action Group meeting on 4 September.

The ‘headline’ action is the establishment of a task group to develop proposals on how to make an ‘identify-encourage-enable’ approach to project development, and working with Gloucestershire Community Energy Cooperative (GCEC), work effectively in practice.  The task group will report back to the next meeting of the action group in October (watch out for a separate e-mail ‘doodling’ for dates).

Please also consider the following actions:

2              PV on Schools: please let Alison Crane know if you have good contacts with an Academy secondary school (, so that GCEC can open discussions about installing rooftop PV before the FIT ends next March.

14           Gloucestershire Energy Strategy: if you want to input to strategy development, register for the stakeholder workshop on 9 Oct at

20           Information/research: if you’d like access to our extensive on-line library of material about renewable and community energy please let me know and I’ll make it so.

21           Skills inventory: if you or a friend/colleague have skills and experience that could be offered to the group, please let me know.  This might include, for example, renewable energy development, energy audits, project management, fundraising, community engagement and partnership working (to name but a few!).  If you’d like a chat about this give me a ring.

Any further comments or thoughts, please get in touch!

Best wishes,

Fred Barker
