Lake District National Park

The Canals and Rivers Trust and the Lake District National Park Authority are the landlords of Killington Reservoir and the National Park HQ at Murley Moss, respectively. Without their careful consent and lease considerations neither project would have launched. Their commitment to community energy and the long term prosperity of Cumbria have been critical. www.canalrivertrust.org.uk; www.lakedistrict.gov.uk

Cumbria Action for Sustainability

Registered charity CAfS has been crucial in the development of CEC Ltd, providing a £15,000 development loan to set up and launch the projects. It has also provided a ‘Working Group’ to advise the project as well as providing administration to manage the first share issue. CAfS has been delivering practical sustainability projects for 15 years, and so the development of CEC Ltd fits closely with CAfS’ aims of enabling Cumbria to move closer towards a zero carbon society. www.cafs.org.uk
