A local meeting established the existence of a significant interest to address climate change within the village community of Outwood. A committee, which is working in collaboration with the parish council, was formed to take this endeavour forward. It was decided to explore the possibility of developing renewable energy systems in the parish, to reduce carbon and benefit residents. A study is being undertaken to explore whether the village can transition from its reliance on oil and LPG for heating and hot water. A consortium of three specialist consultancies is examining the village geography and geology, the availability of land and site selection, the attitudes of residents, and the technical, financial, business and community benefits of various renewable energy options. The project is for and by the community, so the involvement of residents is key. The findings from the study will be shared with the whole village. Project award: Stage 1 feasibility grant £36k.
