  • The Context• After years of debate about the impact of climate change we need this debate to start changing mainstream behaviours• The economics of the situation are now a realistic lever for change• You don’t want to just consult – you want to engage people in change
  • Social Change: 18 year olds 85% Access the internet at home 61% access social networking sites at home 50% of their online time is via a mobile device 20% of this time is spent on social networking 95% of them feel confident as an internet userAnd they trust the content that they find far more than other groupsThey are used to having information and people at their fingertipsSource: OFCOM 2010 (http://stakeholders.ofcom.org.uk/binaries/research/cmr/753567/UK-internet.pdf)
  • But its not just this demographic
  • New cultural values?
  • Behaviour Change• There are two main options with respect to behaviour change: – Framing the options in a way which makes the ‘good’ choice more likely (yes…its nudge) – Working with communities and networks to embed behaviour changes in the local context• Of the two, the second is more sustainable
  • What is a RIF?• A Renewable Infrastructure Framework provides: – A technical baseline of the potential for Renewable and Sustainable Energy Generation – An estimate of the inward investment potential for the area – Practical steps to start to deliver this infrastructure – A delivery network to undertake these steps
  • Why do you need a RIF?• Because large scale infrastructure projects are hard – they are complex and they involve diverse stakeholders – You need an approach which will accommodate the existence of diverse interests and views – Building trust is essential and needs to be a stated objective and not just a by product
  • Why do you need a RIF?• Because to move forward you need to have a common place to start – Without a shared evidence base you are hampered from starting to act – you debate the facts not the actions – Bringing people together around evidence highlights areas of agreements and gives a factual basis for disagreement
  • Why do you need a RIF?• Because focusing on investment potential unlocks capacity in the area – Green Tech has the potential to be a high growth industry with or without government support – Energy security concerns offer up investment opportunities and a catalyst for action
  • Why do you need a RIF?• Because creating a network means you have someone to take the work forward – You can’t make this kind of complex change without involving actors – over time – in your long term purpose – This needs a network of relationships and trust and not just a single structure
