Renewable Energy at Community level
Awareness Raising on Community Led Renewable Energy Theme
Aim of this project
This project provided 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 the project achieved
The film and leaflet concentrates on various forms of renewable energy with reference being made to conserving energy, insulation, awareness raising on ways to reduce costs, tackling rural and fuel poverty and signposting to other sources of information. There are Welsh and English versions of the film and leaflet. The film is available on YouTube and other platforms, it has been embedded within relevant websites and promoted via social and other media.
The project has raised awareness on environmental benefits, reductions in carbon footprint and fuel poverty. It is anticipated that the film and leaflet will further 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 a total project cost of £1,400 (RDP amount: £1,120).
