Partnerships for Community Energy
Our Partners are a key focus for Community Energy South.
We welcome new partners who support community energy and want to become a part of the movement.
Partners could be government departments, local suppliers, infrastructure organisations, innovators and many more all with a common theme of working together to support communities and speed up the path to net zero.
We are stronger together.
We have developed Smart Communities with our partner UK Power Networks with a view of working with local community energy groups in the vicinity of major infrastructure projects and through our stakeholder team aiming to put people at the heart of the energy system.

Partnerships across the region and within the energy sector are extremely important to the success of community energy.

Community Energy England (CEE) is a not for profit organisation that represents and supports those committed to the community energy sector.
CEE was established by the sector to provide a voice for community energy and to help create the conditions within which it can flourish. This is done by increasing the profile of community energy, building capacity within the sector, and by advocating for supportive policies at national and local levels.
CEE supports the work of Community Energy South and other regional organisations who help to harness local community energy groups, often in partnership and always collaboratively.
‘The community energy sector in the National Park area is currently under-developed. We have an existing network of communities that are interested in community energy, but we lack experience in this sector. Working with CES helps us to develop the potential for supporting the shift to community renewables across the National Park. With their support we can work more effectively with our local communities to support their transition to a low-carbon future.’
