Summary

Local councils (e.g. Parish or Community Councils) are uniquely placed to work on energy action at a very local level with their communities.  This project aims to encourage and enable local councils to engage in local energy action that helps to cut fuel poverty, and also to explore the extent to which such action can help potentially excluded local communities to benefit from the Green Deal.  Linked to this, the project will explore what more is needed to enable local councils to play a full role in the equitable implementation of Government sustainable energy policy.
