Who Are We?
|There will be no Congress in 2019. Let's identify events instead that can have a community energy element to them||1|
Our core - C4CE committee and people we work with/hear from regularly
Main active voices in each community energy group, mostly those on our C4CE FB group
Let's keep in mind our main goal (growing the sector) and value propositions:
All the members of community energy groups and wannabe members
Connecting 2. and 3. to skills, networks and inspiration from others
all our supporters, reaching beyond our groups to govt and industry
Amplifying the news of the sector, promoting everyone's initiatives
Stay true to some core messages
Building relationships with new supporters and potential sources of $$

often - household level energy, renewable energy, energy efficiency, energy justice, community development, grants
Encourage local, state and fed govt programs. Try to avoid ugly politics.
