Ulterior Motive

We are refreshing our committee membership and planning for 2019. Connecting with C4CE will give you an opportunity to have your say about what we might achieve at a national level and to discover if you are interested in volunteering in the year ahead.  We will be calling for Expressions of Interest for our committee and sub-committees from 12th December through to 14th January 2019.

Planning for 2019

Our next Congress will be in 2020 so we want to make the most of existing events for promoting community energy in 2019. If you know events we should be thinking about please let us know or provide information directly into our 2019 planner.
We will be trying to amplify the voices of the community energy sector so please make sure you put your group’s social media presence into the planner as well.
