Totnes Renewable Energy Society (TRESOC)

A Report from the Launch of the Totnes Renewable Energy Society
Last Friday, in Totnes Civic Hall, saw the historic launch of the Totnes Renewable Energy Society (TRESOC).

A key piece in the relocalisation of Totnes and district, TRESOC offers members of the community the chance to buy into their own renewable energy company. The evening started with Cllr. Tony Whitty, the Mayor of Totnes

He was then followed by Quentin Compton-Bishop from the National Energy Foundation, who have supported TRESOC in getting to the stage they have. They run a range of schemes, such as ‘Old Home, SuperHome’ (look up www.Superhomes.org.uk), various education initiatives, and also offer support to community energy projects, this being one of them. He pointed out that the UK Government’s ‘Low Carbon Transition Plan’ commits that by 2020, 15% of energy will come from renewables, and by 2050, 80%. We currently produce 3% from renewables. “How on earth will we manage it?”, he asked.

The bulk of the presentation was taken up by Ian Bright, one of the Directors of TRESOC
