Community led renewable energy projects can embrace a range of different technologies and scales of energy production. This quick guide gives a brief introduction to each type of technology, and some of the practicalities that your organisation will need to consider when deciding on the nature of the project you wish to pursue.
There is a range of support available to help you get going. The first point of call to discuss your ideas might be Renew Wales, which can provide peer to peer mentoring by people who have already gained experience in developing renewable energy or energy efficiency projects. The Welsh Government, European Funded Ynni’r Fro programme may also be able to help with additional advice and support. The Resource Efficient Wales programme is also available to assist with opportunity reports to community organisations around energy, waste and water.
