From: Catherine Mitchell
To: Exeter Community Energy, Exeter, 10th February 2015
How is energy developing at EU / global level?
- Much more practice change (ie increased renewables; new companies; more community energy) happening in countries other than GB
How is energy developing in GB?
- Energy, anyway always political, has become very political under the coalition
- Focus on nuclear power
- Lip service to renewables, efficient energy demand management, energy demand reduction, community energy etc
- Some changes at city / community level driven by people + changes occurring elsewhere
