The Community Energy Coalition

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.

Our goal is to bring community energy to scale by 2020, with communities owning, generating and saving their own energy. For example, we would like to increase the amount of electricity provided from community sources of solar photovoltaic, onshore wind and hydro projects to meet the energy needs of one million homes.

And with our committed members representing millions of people across the UK, we are uniquely positioned to achieve it.

Explore the site to find out more about who we are and some of the exciting things we are doing, including this year’s Community Energy Fortnight, which runs throughout the UK in September.
