Partnerships for Community Energy

Our Partners are a key to the success of community energy. We welcome new partners with a strong commitment to community energy and want to become a part of the movement. Partners could be government departments, local suppliers, infrastructure organizations and energy innovators. Working together we can support communities and speed up the path to net zero.

Key partners

We work with a large number of local authorities across England. We developed Smart Communities with UK Power Networks, working with local community energy groups in the vicinity of major infrastructure projects. Through our stakeholder engagement, we put people at the heart of the energy system. Get in contact to find out how we can work together.

We are stronger together.

Community Energy England (CEE) is a not for profit organisation established to provide a voice for the community energy sector. It creates the conditions within which the sector can flourish. CEE are increasing the profile of community energy and advocating for supportive policies at national and local levels.

We work in partnership with CEE and other regional organisations to support local community energy groups by delivering events, promoting campaigns and collaborating on projects.

The South Downs National Park (SDNP) has an existing network of communities that are interested in community energy. However, the sector is under developed and the park authority lack experience in community energy. Working with CES helped the National Park to develop the potential for supporting the shift to community renewables. This means the park can work more effectively with local communities to support their transition to a low-carbon future.
