Learn about renewables schemes in Dorset, the Dorset Energy Partnership and the Dorset Renewable Energy Strategy.
The Dorset Energy Partnership
The Dorset Energy Partnership (formally Dorset Energy Group) is an active group of organisations set up to develop and deliver the Bournemouth Dorset and Poole Energy Efficiency StrategyBournemouth Dorset and Poole Renewable Energy Strategy to 2020.
The partnership comprises an executive and five working groups. The executive is responsible for the overall direction, delivery and monitoring of both strategies and has a core membership of 20 members including representatives from Dorset County Council, all of Dorset's district/borough councils, the unitary authorities of Poole and Bournemouth, as well as other stakeholders from the community and business sectors.
The working groups are responsible for delivering the priority action areas in each strategy, and as such address sustainable energy in the public, community and domestic sectors as well as planning and bioenergy. Each working group is responsible for developing and delivering annual action plans and again includes representatives from Dorset's local authorities, and community and business sectors.
We are currently developing our latest Action Plan. View the previous years' documents:
