Community Energy Birmingham’s AGM was held on 13 July 2016. It was with great pleasure that the board could report to members on the events of 2015, including the successful share offer and the installation of two arrays of solar PV at the Moseley Exchange and one at Ackers Adventure.
Both the policy and business environment for community energy has changed considerably since the instigation of these projects, and members were invited to get involved as the board engages in a new phase of planning, to devise business models that work in these changing conditions.
We also welcomed Sandra Green from the car-sharing company Co-Wheels to give a presentation, to stimulate ideas of how we might develop new partnership models, such as those involving electric vehicles. It was also of general interest to our members to hear how other people are going about the greening of our city.
