The Green Valleys Community Interest Company
Wales has tremendous resources for renewable energy, but development has been hampered by inadequate energy policies. The goal of this project was to assist the Green Valleys Community Interest Company in developing a model renewable energy strategy for Wales to better meet UK climate change goals, promote the growth of a rural energy economy, and improve renewable energy success in the corporate and community sectors. Based on interviews with renewable energy experts in several countries, we identified three models of development: corporate invested energy, community invested energy, and community energy storage and management. We recommend that Wales pursue all three models and we identify various policies necessary to support this approach.
