Getting people involved

Once your group sets off on the path towards a low carbon or renewable energy project, getting people involved will be crucial.

You'll need to get your community thinking about energy and seeing the potential benefits of your project. You may want to encourage local residents to take part, or join your group as volunteers. Or you may be trying to involve people from your council, make links with local organisations and networks, and get local businesses on board. This section provides advice and guidance on all of these processes.

If you have a project which may be contentious, or on which you are keen to get input from a range of stakeholders, this section also explains how to run a community consultation in a constructive way to get the best results.
