Our energy, our future


One of the founding principles of WREN is that it is irresponsible to promote substantial public programmes without evaluating their impact. It is common for interventions to be promoted without coherent underpinning, and too many ungrounded assertions of the benefits of particular strategies are made.

WREN is therefore determined that any subsequent claims of benefit, or areas of failure, are informed by external evidence.

As the academic output grows, and becomes of wider interest, WREN will develop on its website an academic partnership page to describe initiatives, collaborations, and make available published outputs.

In summary, academic partnerships are being expanded to allow WREN to develop, with its academic partners, a broad-­based funded evaluation programme, and a distinctive dissemination process of findings to add to debates on the role of community energy schemes, and identify replicable components.
