Last summer Transition Bro Gwaun (TBG) gained approval, subject to drawing up a comprehensive business plan, for a WEFO (Welsh European Funding Office) funded Local Renewable Grid Network project. As you will see from the attached, this is an ambitious project, and the business planning stage is very comprehensive. It has taken several months to obtain funding to progress the process.
We are now inviting applications for the two main roles for the Ynni Lleol WG funding application. We apologise for the fact that due to funding constraints the deadline is tight and responses are due by 5p.m. Wednesday 21st March. Please pass this on to anyone you think would be interested. Any queries on the roles, please email Tom Latter or Jeremy Martineau (contacts in the documents).
If you are unable to complete this work but are interested in working with TBG on our ongoing renewable energy projects please contact Tom Latter or Jeremy Martineau (contacts in the documents).

What is Transition Bro Gwaun?
Transition Bro Gwaun is a community process of imagining and creating a future that addresses the challenges of climate change, resource depletion, including expensive oil and gas supplies, and an unsustainable economy reliant on growth. We aim to create the kind of community that makes the future more certain for our children and less dependent on resources from elsewhere. This has enormous implications not only for the environment, but also on an economic system that currently relies on unsustainable growth.
We aim to create a sustainable, prosperous society without growth, and without oil dependency.
Transition Bro Gwaun is one of a growing number of transition initiatives around the world, being inspired by the original model developed in Kinsale (Eire) under the guidance of Rob Hopkins in 2005. An important part of the Transition process involves finding and working with existing groups and organisations, as well as looking for new projects.
We publicise our work and Transition issues through regular meetings, talks to local groups, our stall at the Farmers Market, a regular e-mail newsletter, attending local events, and on its website.
