An architect I met at Eco-Build has drawn my attention to this new initiative by the National Energy Foundation which

brings together and supports community activists who are setting up social enterprises to address the challenges of peak oil and climate change. It aims to speed up the rate at which good ideas are adopted by community groups motivated to build low-carbon economies. They provide information packs which have been written and reviewed by people with first-hand knowledge of the community and climate action sectors they work in. Often the authors will have been involved in the conception of the project idea and in many cases they would now be regarded as experts in their fields.

Packs include:
Energy Farms - Anaerobic Digestion (2.7Mb)
Community-led Food Initiatives (3.4Mb)
Energy Performance Energy Services Company (1.6 Mb)
Community-led Hydro Initiatives (3.5Mb)
Sustainable Community loan Fund (2.7Mb)
Community-led Wind power (0.9Mb)
Community-led Reuse of Resources (1.4Mb)
Community-led Transport Initiatives (5.1Mb

The website is at http://www.nef.org.uk/communities/local-united.html

Chris,
Talking about Eco-Build - Too much to hope that you got down to the Brighton event last Saturday?
If you did, any comments on it?

Oh yes - I forgot that how did it go? The way things turned out I could have helped out - my day at work was very disappointing. Sorry, that's a bit off topic.
