Supporting community energy

How we support community energy

Find out more about our strategy, newsletters, events and our annual seed fund which supports community and local energy projects.

We were the first distribution network operator (DNO) to publish a community and local energy strategy in 2018 and since then have been working hard to ensure we are responding to the sector’s needs.

Since we first published a community and local energy strategy in 2018 we have:

  • Funded 19 projects through our seed fund
  • Hosted 11 Community Connects engagement events
  • Published quarterly community and local energy newsletters
  • Published quarterly regulation and policy updates in response to stakeholder feedback.
