  16. 16. Did the processwork?
  17. 17. Hugh Parnell – Chairman Envirotech: “The CRIF event I went to was very useful. It did actually congregate a large number of people, which is already agood start. They were empowered to express their opinions - there were some doubters with sensible critical comments, I think the team was very sensible in the way they engagedwith the audience and I think that consultation has to be an important part of this process.”
  18. 18. Martin Garrett – CEX Cambridge Clean Tech:“I think in both the plenary session and in the workshops there was an opportunity [to state our cases] but clearly the workshops in particular provided that opportunity”
  19. 19. Impact This approach has allowed the participants to test and effect thetechnical methodology at the start of the workIt has shaped the recommendations around the needs of thecommunity pathwaysIt has started to build the relationships and networks between thedifferent stakeholder groups
  20. 20. Co-production “So we think that‟s a really positive development and there was a great deal of information that we had on the display this evening and the talk this evening, but one of the great things was it‟s been a two-way street – and I think we‟velearned much from CRIF; I hope that you‟ve learned from us as well and our experiences here in Gamlingay.”
  21. 21. And being listened to“I think that one of the things you‟ve been able to show us this evening is that some of the concerns we have here in the village about global warming, about energy generation, about getting local representatives to take our concerns seriously are actually being looked at, are being listened to at least at some kind of level.”
  22. 22. Engagement from the Business CommunityRobert Gardiner – Homeatrix CRIF Cleantech event“I‟m really pleased to have been at this event and it‟s great to see that the public sector is taking an interest in making sure that the opportunities that are alive in both the SME sector and the large sector are really harnessed and put together.”
  23. 23. Going forward
  24. 24. The networks and relationships that have been formed by thisprocess are there to be used in the futureThis kind of effect has a half-life and will need to be refreshed in theNew Year
  25. 25. There is an appetite to do this Linda Whitebread – CRIF Final event:“I think it‟s a superb project and I‟ve been really impressed by all the work that‟s gone into it. It‟s been very well researched and thought through and there have been lots of brilliant ideas.”
