Geovation Greener Smarter Communities Challenge

Eco-operative - Enabling local co-operative energy generation

Renewable energy sources, namely wind and solar power are most suited to small scale, local generation. Decentralised electricity generation at a community level is slowly becoming a reality, with projects like Westmill and the Hepburn Wind Project providing real life success stories. I hope to develop a platform that enables community members to work out the logistics of installing local renewable generation, ranging from working out required capacity to identifying suitable sites and offering cost estimates.
