Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I'm not sure about "Micro" - those little windmills they flog in B&Q are a joke, and solar panels have got some way to go yet, as I understand it.

Far more mileage in "Meso" community projects on a neighbourhood and area (multiple neighbourhoods) scale basis, I think, both in terms of renewable energy generation, and in retrofitting energy efficiency (Negawatt) measures.

But the boundary of Micro and Meso is grey. Of course, there could be some big wins in urban distribution of hot water from current plant by "CHP'ing" them, although the current distribution of UK generation doesn't give that much opportunity.
