We’re delighted our project managers at Hockerton Housing Project are joining a new mentoring service for Community Energy projects as a Peer Mentor, thanks to a new project funded by the Esmee Fairburn Foundation.
Like the other Peer Mentors across the country, they have a range of experience to share, in terms of scale and technologies, in renewable energy generation. And they are experienced in mentoring a range of projects, having run a similar service through the Energy Saving Trust, as well as their current advisory services.
Eligible community energy groups accepted onto the programme can access up to 6 days of support from the Peer Mentors. It is perceived that mentoring activities will be undertaken using a range of interventions to include face to face meetings (one to one or group), telephone discussions and email exchanges.
Full details will be provided when you apply for support, and you will be matched with the mentor who meets your needs in terms of project type and location – though there’s no harm in requesting us is there?!
