About this meeting:

We can produce all the energy we need in the county, in the county! Join us to discuss how we can "power up" Dorset.

Our Dorset 2030 report sets out a vision (see below) for how we can provide all our energy needs with renewables. This event will explore this in more detail, consider whether the objectives we propose need developing further, ascertain whether there are 2 or 3 key aspects we should focus on and, of course, be ready to discover any new case studies people can provide.

To get the discussion going, local renewable energy expert Pete West will provide a personal perspective on what the opportunities are.

To open the session, we're being joined by British Solar Renewables (BSR) who will be sharing key details of their planning application for a solar farm on land at Wraxall Manor Farm, Wraxall, Dorset, DT2 0HW.

This is an on-line session; attendance is free and Zoom details will be issued to registered attendees just before the event.

Our 2030 Vision for 'Power Up'

By 2030…

All Dorset’s energy needs are provided by renewable sources, all of them situated within the county’s boundaries or offshore. The transition has been just, equitable and produced wider benefits to residents, including the creation of local jobs and lower bills.

Most energy production is owned by the community through various mechanisms: Council-controlled installations that return profits to residents through reduced local taxes, mutual organisations who return profits to members, direct community ownership, and homeowners themselves.

The link between energy requirements (for example how many wind turbines we need) and our energy usage is clearly understood, supporting the on-going efforts of businesses, the public sector, communities, and individuals to reduce their energy demand.

No biofuels or any other ‘renewable’ technologies are employed that require imported materials or are in some other way damaging to eco-systems.
