Community Energy Projects: The Social Factors for Success

This project, commissioned by the Scottish Government, examined the critical issues around social capital, community, and governance that influence the success of small-scale energy projects. 

Working with Scene, it investigated the motivators and barriers to community energy projects, and assessed the potential and limitations of the predominant business models for community energy.  The project was funded by ClimateXChange for the Scottish Government.
