My Thesis' Abstract

 

Community energy generation in the UK: Its role in decarbonising the UK energy system

 

The overall objective of my project is to address the question of what role that community plays in the decarbonisation in the UK. I will identify and analyse the drivers for community energy project development (including policy, finance, personal concern, etc.) and the main barriers.

 

My research will investigate three solar farm projects with three different types of ownership: fully community-owned, joint venture and fully private-owned with community benefits. The research will employ a wide range of secondary sources and in-depth interviews with key stakeholders of the wind farm projects and the local community residents.

 

At the end of my research, I will discuss and recommend how additional opportunities for the UK to fulfil its carbon emissions and the findings of the study will lead to recommendations for various stakeholder groups including local communities, developers and policy makers.
