Local Area Energy Catalyst Model - Generation, Distribution and Consumption of Energy 2016-04-29 14:35:10
As one of seven demonstrators within the first wave of demonstration projects across Wales under the Smart Living Framework, the Blaenau Gwent Energy Catalyst Model seeks to investigate the potential to create, move and use energy together with other services to encourage equality of support for our residents and businesses.
• To capitalise on opportunities to increase the share of renewable energy sources in the energy mix and support the development of an overall energy vision for the Blaenau Gwent area;
• To intensify efforts to shift towards a low carbon economy by increasing the production, distribution and use of renewable sources of energy;
• To use practical 'demonstrations' of new energy technologies, management systems and processes to improve energy management;
• Contribute towards tackling economic, social and environmental challenges associated with energy and support those communities in fuel poverty;
• To stimulate and support behavioural change together with sound energy management between consumers and local communities; and
• Raise awareness about renewable energies and important opportunities their deployment could mean for local economies.
