WJM's Renewable Energy mini-conference

16 June 2015

Focusing on Collaboration and Communities

Every renewable energy project touches a community somewhere. This year's conference will be looking at how communities and developers can each get the most out of a collaborative energy project.

Highlands and Islands Enterprise are joining WJM to show how communities, business and local agencies are working together to deliver energy, and create valuable local benefit across the region.

Outline programme

  • Finance for your project: finding investors and becoming investor-ready
  • Investing community benefit wisely: maximising impact
  • Shared ownership and joint ventures: what developers are looking for in a community collaboration, and opportunities for communities to share ownership

We also expect to touch on some exciting new developments including the Low Carbon Infrastructure Transition Programme (LCITP) and the Scottish Government Local Energy Investment Fund (LEIF) which have the potential to have transformative effects and unlock projects across the region.

Our industry recognised speakers have been there and done it, and you’ll be able to benefit from their experiences, good and bad. They’ll tell you the benefits and pitfalls they encountered as they moved from good idea to generation.

Pre-register through and we’ll keep you up to date as speakers are confirmed AND offer you priority, advanced booking.
