About Ace

Overview

Ace is a renewable energy initiative which has been launched across several North West European countries. It promotes the importance of renewable energy in everyday life to citizens, businesses, universities and local government – the idea is, if the right information is provided there will be an increased uptake of renewable energy.

Ace is about co-operation. Utilities, energy supply companies, businesses, local government and energy users as well as other energy actors are developing their own separate strategies for renewable energy. A lack of co-ordination and sharing of knowledge among various North West European communities has lead to limited success in the renewable energy sector within Europe. Ace will address this information gap by informing and educating the public on how to switch from conventional fossils fuels to renewable energy resources.

Ace supports the fact that renewable energy is the building block on which our futures must be built. When Energy Champions come together they will make things happen through collaboration. The academy uses resources already available within our communities rather than more technical solutions. Using community resources can be very effective as technical solutions often have a high upfront cost yet still don’t address the key issues associated with increasing uptake of renewable energy. Ace enables this collaboration energy champions & other relevant energy actors. The result will be a more closely-linked EU network that will benefit citizens in this region.
