The real value of people power: New research project with the British Academy
22nd October 2015

With renewables policy in a state of flux (I think that’s the polite way of putting it) it’s really important to make the case for community-based initiatives, which offer much more than megawatts – contributing to local regeneration, social cohesion and engagement in climate change. So I’m really pleased to be working with the British Academy on a project which really gets under the skin of these projects. Working with colleagues Pete Capener, of Bath and West Community Energy, and Neil Simcock at Lancaster University, we’ll be delving into the all-important cultural factors which influence these projects, and seeing what the impact is on local communities. There’s more on the project on this blog for the British Academy.
