CIC Start Online Conference 2011 – Edinburgh Napier University

More information at our Website: www.cicstart.org Energy co-operatives as a means of achieving sustainability within the housing sector Sarah Borthwick Sarah Deas Douglas Prentice Our dependency on energy is threatened by two realities: dwindling supplies of fossil fuels and rising levels of environmental pollution. With this in mind, alternative sources of energy are increasingly being turned to, including the technologies to harbour these. Various national and international targets have been set, focusing upon the limiting of climate changing greenhouse gas emissions and increasing the uptake of renewable sources of energy — and Scotland is no exception. The use of both solar and wind power are first of all considered as a means to facilitate the above scenario, focusing upon the application of solar photovoltaic panels and wind turbines for the generation of electricity and thermal water heaters for the provision of hot water in our homes and buildings. These systems are evaluated in terms of their dynamics, structure types, strengths and weaknesses, plus a reflection of their current levels of adoption and potential for future application. The financial incentives offered at Government level to help encourage the uptake are also assessed, including that of the feed-in tariff and renewable heat incentive. Leading on from this, the co-operative approach to renewable energy is thoroughly examined in which to achieve scale, manage risk and raise capital — whilst
