Public & Voluntary Sector

Welcome to the Public and Voluntary Sector Group  

This group focuses on the addressing the information needs of public sector organisations and voluntary sector bodies to help them undertake and manage projects aimed at renewable energy generation and improved energy efficiency. It also covers the role of these organisations as catalysts to support initiatives for other groups and bodies.

So, whether you are a local authority, a government department, an agency, a voluntary body or a charity, if you're looking to develop or manage a green energy project this is the place to find out more, ask questions and discuss issues with your peers around the UK.

All material we publish on GEN that is of relevance to commercial businesses will be available from here.
