A company which plans to help communities develop their own renewable energy systems like wind turbines for cash has been launched. It follows the initiative by The Berwick upon Tweed Community Development Trust, owned by local people, which will benefit from a £2.3m windfall over the next 25 years. The money will be used to provide benefits for residents, unemployed and older people, businesses and visitors to live, work and play in the town. The social business, Community Renewable Energy, CoRE, organised the installation of the turbine working along with Berwick Trust. However the work of CoRE has now ended and in its wake the new company has been set up called Sustainable Community Energy North East (SCENE). Working in partnership with the North East Social Enterprise Partnership, it is looking to use the Berwick scheme as one of its business models.
