Renewable Energy at Community level
Awareness Raising on Community Led Renewable Energy Theme
Aims of this project
This project is to provide both on-line and off-line marketing material in the form of a short film and summary leaflet focussing on the opportunities available for community led renewable energy in the Vale of Usk region.
What will the project achieve
The film and leaflet will concentrate on various forms of renewable energy with reference being made to conserving energy, insulation, awareness raising on ways to reduce costs, tackle rural and fuel poverty and likely signposting to other sources of information. The film will include welsh sub-titles, the leaflet will be bilingual. Once produced, the film will be available on YouTube and other platforms, the film can be embedded within relevant websites and promoted via social and other media.
On completion of this project we hope to raise awareness to the public on environmental benefits, reductions in carbon footprint and fuel poverty. It is anticipated that the film will stimulate interest and ultimately lead to proposals for community led projects.
The application for this project was approved by the LAG on 20th April 2016 with an aim to start on or around 2nd May until 31st December 2016 , with a total project cost of £3,043. English and Welsh language leaflets have been completed and are available to download below:
