2 Why install renewable technologies? Using appropriate renewable technologies in combination with energy use reduction measures will help a community organisation to be more sustainable over the long term, reducing energy costs and carbon emissions, generating income

3 Community Energy Scotland Scottish Charity, Company Ltd by Guarantee Staff operating across Scotland, providing local point of contact Membership based (over 170 so far) Helping hundreds and hundreds of communities since 2001

4 Our Aim: To build confidence, resilience and wealth at community level in Scotland through sustainable energy development

10 Scottish Government 2020 key targets include: 100% electricity demand equivalent from renewables 11% heat demand from renewables 30% overall energy demand from renewables 12% reduction in final energy demand 500MW of new renewable energy capacity in community or local ownership

11 Facility Based Microgeneration & Energy efficiency projects Wood fuelled systems, heat pumps, solar thermal panels, solar PV, small wind turbines Insulation, draught proofing, low energy lighting More sustainable buildings Lower costs – more to spend on service provision

12 Coalburn One Stop Shop Solar PV solar thermal air to air source heat pumps cavity wall and loft insulation

13 Coalburn One Stop Shop More comfortably heated buildings Savings and income from Feed in Tariff = £100s Helping them to provide low cost services for the local community, including classes, function space, ATM, post office, shop Interpretation and visits for others to learn

14 Urban Development Programme For urban areas, for projects serving disadvantaged groups and communities. Funding and support available for feasibility and capital projects until March 2012

15 Community Powerdown II Network Funded through Climate Challenge Fund A network of communities across Scotland working to reduce carbon emissions CES member of staff supporting this network New funding round for CCF now open !!

16 Monitoring Important aspect Checking and optimising performance Wind, solar, wood fuel and heat pump projects Plans to put some live data on our website to share the learning
