The ECCO project seeks to provide innovative solutions to energy challenges through a collaborative project involving established community energy groups in Wales, Ireland, France, Belgium, Germany and The Netherlands. The Green Valleys CIC is the Welsh partner, a multi-award winning Community Interest Company with almost a decade of experience in community energy projects. By working together to share experiences, financing models, engagement methods, technical skills and policy developments, the ECCO project partners aim to accelerate the growth of local Energy Community Co-Operatives (ECCOs), both in effectiveness and in numbers.
Hydro Volunteers needed please!
Now that we have 5 micro hydro schemes up and running we’d like to get a few more volunteers involved in monitoring them for us, especially now that we’re heading into the (hopefully) rainy season. It’ll take around an hour or so of your time once every 6-9 weeks. If you feel you can help or would like to know more, please feel free to get in touch with us by email to Simon Walter: email@example.com
Our final micro hydro scheme, Cwm Saerbren was commissioned on Friday 9th February and is fully up and running!
