Three interesting co-operative models were presented at the Community Owned Energy workshop in December 2013. The speakers gave an insight into their operational models, their membership composition and the community impact of their projects. All three projects relied on a community share offer and the challenges and advantages of financing projects in this way were discussed at the event.
