A short-listed bid to the Big Lottery’s Communities Living Sustainably on behalf of the North Devon Biosphere. The project provided an opportunity to develop new partnerships with local; Housing Associations, Environmental Action Groups, Social Enterprises and Community Energy Companies to work together to share knowledge and practice across the North Devon Biosphere area to reduce the impact of fuel poverty.
The resulting Community Energy Group lead a bioregional ‘Sustainable Energy Action Plan’ as part of an EU funded programme SEACS.
