Community Energy Fortnight 2017

Community Energy Fortnight 2017 is a go, and this year we are shaking things up to make it an even more diverse and distinctly louder celebration of all things community energy! After a successful Community Energy Fortnight in 2016, we are excited to announce another year of collaboration between Community Energy England and Forum for the Future, on behalf of the Community Energy Coalition. This will be the UK’s fifth Community Energy Fortnight, and is made possible once again with the support and sponsorship of Co-operative Energy.

For the first time, the Fortnight will take place in early summer, between 24th June – 9th July 2017. This will facilitate more outdoor events than ever before, and enable us to link up with the Climate Coalition’s Week of Action in the first week of July. This new partnership will result in a larger event and a louder voice as we showcase inspiring examples of communities who are sharing their resources to generate clean renewable energy or actively reduce their energy demand and carbon emissions.

Further details of the Fortnight will be on the website shortly - if you are interested in running an event or getting involved in 2017 please do get in touch to register your interest.

Generating and saving energy together for the benefit of all.

Energy is such a vital part of our lives, and yet we have next to no say in how it is generated, how much it costs us or where it comes from. But it doesn’t have to be that way.

From the Scottish Highlands to the Devonshire shores, people across the breadth of Britain are already coming together to change the way we think about the energy system and their relationship with it.

The Community Energy Coalition is a group of trusted and influential civic society organisations and sustainable energy experts, working to help enable communities take control of their energy. Explore the site to find out more about who we are.
