To utilise and trial digital technologies in remote and isolated communities, which brings together a suite of products and local services that can be scaled up in terms of wider territory co-operation and collective working.
To convert community energy plans into more detailed feasibility studies and trial innovative renewable energy schemes at a community level to tackle fuel poverty & to explore low carbon fuel opportunities for rural community facilities and vehicles.
To share knowledge and best practice between established and “new” rural development communities through toolkits, best practice exchanges & innovation activities.
To provide advice to rural enterprises that facilitates the development of complementary business clusters, shared resources through digital technology & linkages to on-line markets, which in turn, supports short supply chain development.
