Thanks for joining us at CARES 2019!
This year’s CARES Conference was held at Perth Racecourse, 8-9 May. We enjoyed two days of inspiring discussions about community and local energy, and how this fits in to the wider context of action against climate change. If you were there, we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did!
We'd like to thank all the speakers who gave their time and expertise, everyone who came along and contributed to the discussions, and the Scottish Government and our sponsors SSEN, Locogen and Triodos for helping make this event a success.
Here’s some useful information from the event.
