Annual Review released
We have published our latest Annual Review, which describes successes and challenges in 2016–2017.
CES has worked alongside over 70 community groups, and together you and we have:
- enabled hundreds of megawatts of renewable generation
- avoided thousands of tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions
- seen millions of pounds invested.
Across Scotland, CES has worked with members to drive innovation and help them gain as much value as possible from their renewable energy resources.
Exciting projects are piloting innovative approaches that link energy generation and local use, overcome grid constraints, control energy costs and decarbonise the energy system. CES welcomes the engagement of associate members and other technical and funding partners in helping make this happen.
In parallel with this practical work, we've been active players in the policy debates about how the electricity system is operated. We consistently argue the case for greater decentralisation and for local communities to be directly involved. There are encouraging signs that significant change is indeed now underway. We are determined to help communities see the benefit.
