Totnes and District Energy Descent Action Plan

Totnes and District Energy Descent Action Plan

‘Transition in Action: Totnes and District 2030. An Energy Descent Plan’

20 months in the making, many hundreds of members of the local community involved, 230 households surveyed, contributions from local artists and schools, many oral histories carried out, and now the UK’s first comprehensive Energy Descent Action Plan is available. 

The final plan has emerged from a year’s process of running visioning workshops, backcasting workshops, extensive talks to local groups, some not-done-before research such as ‘Can Totnes and District Feed Itself?’ and an extensive Energy Budget for the area to ascertain how much energy could be generated locally and oral history interviews.   It suggests that the relocalisation of much of the economy will be central to the revival of the community’s economic fortunes, and will leave it happier, healthier and better connected.
