Community owned and led energy for security climate change and employment (COALESCCE)
Oldham Council is the lead partner for COALESCCE; a Europe wide project to help deliver community green energy projects.
The five year project will see public bodies from across Europe work together to share expertise to help community energy projects get off the ground.
It will also compliment Generation Oldham; a local initiative which helps local companies and community organisations to install energy generating equipment and energy efficiency measures in their buildings and the Greater Manchester Community Energy Innovation project which does so on a regional level.
It is hoped the project, which is financed by INTERREG Europe, European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), will eventually help to develop new schemes and lower bills for local residents, businesses, schools and community groups who take part.
