Bringing people together
The change required to democratise, decentralise, decarbonise and digitise energy (the 4Ds) requires us all to work together. TEC’s team and volunteers have been sharing knowledge, advocating for a net zero future and engaging stakeholders for over 10 years.
TEC regularly takes part in local events such as Tavistock Garden Festival, Gulworthy Fete and Callington’s Honey Fair. TEC was delighted to take part in Tavistock’s first EcoFair in 2019. TEC also holds its own events including its Feast for the Future last year, its AGM and the annual Energy Fest.
TEC has helped develop a network of community energy enterprises and local councils across Devon, working to tackle fuel poverty and help their communities engage in and benefit from the low carbon transition. TEC is a member of Regen, Community Energy England, NEA (National Energy Action) and Coops UK. Locally TEC is a member of the Okehampton and Tavistock Health and Wellbeing Alliances and the Tavistock and District Chamber of Commerce.
Wherever possible TEC works with local suppliers in the fields of renewable energy, insulation, heating and other measures.
TEC values it's working relationships with West Devon Borough Council, Devon County Council, Cornwall Council and the local town and parish councils.
