The Foundation has focused on providing a lead to one-off community energy projects that lacked long-term security over the past few years.
Energy Saving Trust is currently exploring proposals for the future direction of the Foundation. Given the current political climate, with city leaders recognising their role in climate mitigation and tackling air pollution, recent public action around climate change and the declared climate emergency, it’s a positive time to create new alliances.
Following meetings with key stakeholders, the Foundation is reviewing two proposals with potential partners:
- water, energy and food nexus
- planet and wellbeing
These two themes would enable the Foundation to have a public platform to lead on how sustainable futures can gain public support. The following infographic prepared by Mott MacDonald illustrates the high-energy impact of today’s lifestyle and increased climate risk.
