From September 12th to September 14th, RURENER had its 2018 General Assembly, hosted by Le Pays de Combraille en Marche in the Creuse department, France. It was a great opportunity for our members to meet and discuss about their common interests and problematics regarding how to conduct the energy transition in rural areas.
We had the opportunity to visit different places, all linked to the energy transition :
- Wood-fuel heat network with a storage platform in Parsac-Rimondeix
- Waste heat project from thermal activity in Evaux-les-Bains
- Visit of Filature Fonty, a spinning-industry very involved in renewables, in Rougnat
- Inauguration of the “Halle Petite Vitesse” in Felletin, made with a solar roof
We would like to thank everyone that came to this field study tour as well as our General Assembly : our dear members, the elected representatives that welcomed us, and Le Pays de Combraille en Marche for their hospitality.
See you next year !
