Community Energy England

We are proud to be a member of Community Energy England, a membership body representing the community energy sector in England. 

The Community Energy Hub provides a wealth of information on community energy and offers a mechanism for community energy groups to share information among themselves and with other organisations, including potential funders or project partners. 

The Hub is a free resource for community energy projects that will be developed on an on-going basis to expand the information available. For more information visit their website.
