When: Monday 27 & Tuesday 28 February, 2017
With side events on Sunday 26 and Wednesday 1 March.

Congress 2017 is also for organisations looking to partner with and support community energy, including renewable energy developers, policy makers, network companies, retailers, councils, NGOs, regulators, lawyers, financiers and more.
