We should use some of the money to start an energy revolution in the town. We have 2 major energy projects – Triton Knoll and Viking Link which connect at Bicker. We have a gasification plant, we could in combination with the council and other investors develop an energy town with large scale solar at its heart. Solar installations in public spaces, battery storage etc should be investigated. The BAEF project is a must. It would create jobs and skills which we can promote countrywide. It would create another local resource which residents could benefit from – community energy sector reduced bills? We should look to harness the river and our waterways for energy. This investment in renewables and energy will help with the challenge of climate change, but also ensure we have sufficient future resource at a local scale. It would support a green electric economy – with EV charging (rolec) and others
