Case Study: SELCE and Renewable Heat

The changes in government policy over the last year have made it much more challenging for community energy groups to deliver projects.

Regen have engaged extensively with our community network since these announcement and received a grant from the Friends Provident Foundation to support three community groups to develop new business models in community heat networks, energy storage and local supply.

This report, produced in partnership with 10:10 and Community Energy England, summarises the key learning points from their work with South East London Community Energy (SELCE) on a heat network.
