Energy & Environment

Are you interested in setting up a community energy project?

Simply put, community energy is a way for communities to take collective action to reduce, purchase, manage or generate energy.

This guide from the Department of Energy and Climate Change has lots of information on the types of project that your group could start as well as support on how to get there.

Community energy projects could include:

  • Community-owned renewable electricity installations such as solar panels, wind turbines or hydroelectric generation.
  • Members of the community jointly switching to a renewable heat source such as a heat pump or biomass boiler.
  • A community group supporting energy saving measures such as the installation of cavity wall or solid wall insulation.
  • Working in partnership with the local Distribution Network Operator to pilot smart technologies.
  • Collective purchasing of heating oil for off gas-grid communities
  • Collective switching of electricity or gas suppliers.
