Community energy is the delivery of community-led renewable energy, energy demand reduction and energy supply projects. For example this could be a solar farm owned by a Community Benefit Company or trained energy advisers helping local people reduce their energy usage. 

The website of  Community Energy England can tell you more.

Support from Community Energy South and Surrey County Council

A new initiative provides support and training for the development of community-led renewable energy groups and projects. It will provide free resources, business development support, funding and networking opportunities to kick start new organisations.

Find out more from the community energy south website, community owned energy set to thrive in Surrey.
