MCFly 020- Carbon Co-op

The Carbon Co-op has been set up to help small-scale renewable energy projects get going. It is being funded by North West Climate Fund to run a series of feasibility workshops. “Testing the model of a co-operative made up of units of 5-10 individuals, we’ve used social networks to recruit two test groups, one in Hulme in new build housing and one in new build flats in the city centre. We’ll be using the workshops to look at how participants can reduce energy usage and carbon emissions and crucially how people can work together as supportive units to do this. Participants will use energy monitors too, as a way for Carbon Co-op to evaluate ongoing savings and we hope these groups will continue to work together in the future.”
