DEI Seminar Series: People Power: creating a just energy transition

28th November 2019, 13:00 to 14:00, E101, Engineering, Emma Bridge, Community Energy England

Communities across the country are working together to create a zero carbon, sustainable and just energy system that also delivers impressive social impacts. This talk will explore the growth of this energy revolution, from the first community owned wind farm developed 20 years ago to how communities today are using technological innovation to improve the lives of deprived communities. Learn more about the challenges, opportunities and what community energy may look like in the future.

Community Energy England (CEE) is a not for profit organisation that represents and supports those committed to the development of energy projects that are led by and benefit communities. CEE was established by community energy practitioners to provide a voice for the sector and to help to create the conditions within which it can flourish. Appointed as Chief Executive in 2014, Emma has unparalleled knowledge of the sector and its practitioners. Emma’s passion for community energy began when she was appointed as General Manager of Sheffield Renewables in 2012 and builds upon over fifteen years of experience working in sustainable development at local, national and European levels for corporate, public and third sector organisations.

All DEI seminar’s and public lectures are free and open to staff, students and the public.
