To help offset the effects of climate change, we need to reduce the level of Greenhouse Gases being emitted. The only plausible way that this can be achieved is by generating our energy from sources that emit very low or even zero levels of greenhouse gases, such as renewable energy.
Edinburgh Community Energy Co-operative Ltd was formed at the end of 2007 with the support of Co-operative Development Scotland. It is a non-profit, member owned organisation, which was set up to give Edinburgh residents a vehicle to promote and develop renewable and low-carbon energy in the city.
Edinburgh Community Energy Co-operative Ltd encourages people from all walks of life to be part of the ‘renewable revolution’, to get involved in the race against the inevitable reality of climate change and help prevent the consequences of flooding and drought among other emerging penalties that derive from rising sea levels and increased global temperatures.
Climate change is real and is a global phenomenon that needs to be addressed immediately and requires an internationally co-ordinated solution.
Join our co-operative and become involved in the use of renewable energy in Edinburgh and help combat Climate Change.
