What is Community Energy?
“Community energy” is an all-encompassing term for groups of 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 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 the affordability of energy.

The hub is a great place to promote your Community Energy events. Once you have signed up, you can add events. You can link to external sites such as Eventbrite or you can allow Hub members to display if they are attending your event. The map function allows you to clearly show where your event is, just make sure you are very specific with the venue details. By only putting a city, the map will pick a central location and could cause confusion to guests. Community Energy England administrate the site and will remove any events that are not Community Energy related.1. Setting up a profile for yourself

It was established in partnership between Community Energy England, Project Dirt and SE2 with support from Pure Leapfrog, Regen SW, London Sustainability Exchange (LSx), Forum for the Future and AEA Ricardo. The Hub is now managed by Community Energy England.
