PlanLoCaL: energy efficiency and community Green Deal

We are delighted to announce our new resource pack ‘PlanLoCaL: energy efficiency and community Green Deal’ that it is now available on our new PlanLoCaL website to coincide with the national launch of the Green Deal!

The new resources are here.And there’s also a short video of our chief exec Simon Roberts, OBE, explaining the PlanLoCaL resource here. For the full story take a look at the CSE website.

PlanLoCaL is a suite of resources and films to help communities plan for Low Carbon Living. This new pack includes information sheets, case studies, templates and tools. It provides lots of guidance on some tricky and complicated issues so that you don’t have to start from scratch. The aim is to help community groups to make the most out of the Green Deal and gain a better understanding of how to set up and run successful community-led energy efficiency projects in their local area.

Development of the resource was supported by a grant from the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) and draws on the collective knowledge and experience of staff at the Centre for Sustainable Energy. We’ll also be producing a printed version of the resource in the near future. Let us know if you’d like to receive a copy.

We hope that you will find it a really comprehensive guide but we’d love to hear your feedback so we can keep improving. If you do have any comments, drop us a line:planlocalgreendeal@cse.org.uk.

Best wishes
