Motion text

That this House recognises the significant contribution that co-operatives and community projects can make to the Government's stated energy goals of reducing carbon emissions and increasing energy security; notes that co-operative and community-owned renewable energy projects tend to enjoy greater levels of public support and attract fewer planning objections, recycle revenue arising within the locality and contribute to community renewal; and urges the Government to instigate a more comprehensive framework of support for community ownership, including fair treatment in electricity market reform.
