Colin for Community Powerdown


Since an award of funding from the Climate Challenge Fund via a consortium bid though Community Energy Scotland and the Development Trust Association Scotland, the Northmavine Community Development Company (NCDC) has appointed Colin Dickie to the post of Community Powerdown Officer.

Colin, a native of Yell, took up his post recently and has initially spent time considering the outcomes of the project.  The main focus of the two-year project will be to build up a picture of energy use in Northmavine and form an action plan around ways to reduce consumption and energy costs for the community.  Colin also plans to research local food production in the area and consider ways in which this might be increased and better marketed.  The third strand to the project will consider small-scale community renewable projects and how Northmavine could benefit from this scale of renewables.  Initially he would like to build up a baseline picture of energy consumption of the area and will be contacting local householders and businesses to ask for help to build up this information.

This project has now finished.
