Renewable Energy Good Practice Guidance: Risks and opportunities in large scale wind and solar energy generation

“Councils have a strong track record in supporting renewable energy generation, often through solar photovoltaic (PV) systems installed on council buildings. This publication draws on this expertise and looks at the potential for innovation and local leadership in developing larger renewable energy generating assets, either solar farms or wind turbines. As councils and communities look for ways to recover COVID-19 outbreak and “build back better”, this resource should prove to be a useful tool in understanding the potential for renewable energy to generate income as well as reducing harmful carbon emissions.” (p.2)
