Renewable energy generation

7 December 2020: Double Speaker Evening with Steve Shaw from Power For People presenting the case for a Local Electricity Bill and Richard Noakes from Sustainable Hayfield talking about ‘The Role of The Community in the Electrification of the UK’

Energy group member and HVCA Trustee, Steve Platt, is currently coordinating a Hope Valley Renewables Feasibility Study (Project Leader Dr Dawn Ward) which is investigating the viability of and potential support for medium and large-scale renewables in the local area. The study will include demand estimates for renewable energy in the Valley by 2050, and will also publish the results of an extended energy survey open to all residents in the Valley. HVCA and the energy group have been fortunate to receive funding for the survey from Breedon Cement and the Peak Park along with the support of Hope Valley Renewables, a recently incorporated Community Interest Company based in Bradwell wishing to set up a community energy project in the Valley.
