Road map to reduce your carbon footprint and work towards energy neutrality

The steps of the Rurener Roadmap
Published by Christelle Lefevre on 21/06/2013

WHAT IS THE RURENER ROADMAP?

The way for small rural communities to reduce their carbon footprint and work towards energy neutrality is presented as a road map, a  set of steps for your community to follow.  Each step offers advice and tools that have been tested by RURENER pilot communities, and useful case studies illustrating how communities have put theory into practice.

The Roadmap helps you to find support according to your community’s needs.

HOW SHOULD YOU USE THE ROADMAP?

  • There is no «unique way» for a community to reach energy neutrality.
  • You are encouraged to use the Roadmap as presented here, either following the steps sequentially or choosing components according to your own needs.
  • You are welcome to download the tools included within the Roadmap and use or adapt them as required.
  • While the roadmap is a common resource for all communities in the RURENER network, local variations may exist on each of the national websites with tools and advice tailored to meet local needs.
