Community Energy is about people coming to together to reduce energy use, purchase, manage and generate low carbon heat and power.
Community energy projects are often delivered collectively by a group or organisation with a a focus on engagement, local leadership and strong positive outcomes for the local community
Community groups often have distinct, specific localised goals with an overarching benefit of tackling climate change, energy security and making energy affordable.

Community Energy South is now based in Lewes and is supported by a core steering groups of Directors who all have the wealth of experience in the industry.
Community Energy Pathways
Community Energy Pathways enables local authorities and communities to work collaboratively to accelerate the growth of the community energy sector across England, and help us all reach our Net Zero targets. The programme supports local authorities in delivering their climate change strategies and mentors established and emerging community energy groups in their area.
We are running Pathways with Essex, Hampshire, Suffolk, Central Bedfordshire and Surrey County Councils and South Downs National Park. All local authorities are invited to join our Pathways programme to establish a thriving community energy sector in their area.
