Community Energy in the UK

Let’s create a fair and clean energy system, with people and communities sharing the benefits.

This People-Powered Movement Is Growing—and It Needs Your Support to Thrive

Community Energy is at a tipping point in the UK, with local groups looking for new members to join, invest and get involved. Your support is crucial so that we can challenge our current centralised energy system and allow community energy to flourish.

Stories of Community Energy

Image: Energy Garden

London’s Energy Garden

Energy Garden empowers communities to decarbonise London’s rail network. They support people to invest in renewable energy and use the revenue to install lush community gardens on train platforms. You can get involved by joining a garden group or pledging to invest in their solar cooperative.

Power for People

Renewable community energy has untapped potential to expand quickly across the UK. However, this can only happen through legislative change. Power for People is fighting for a rapid transformation to 100 percent clean energy, and they have drafted the Local Electricity Bill to give community-scale renewable energy a massive boost. Help community energy overcome the unfair regulations by writing to your Member of Parliament today.

Get Involved

Together, we can restore power to the people and bring the benefits of clean energy home.


Join or Invest in Your Local Energy Community

Becoming a member of an energy community is the best way to invest your money in a citizen-led power future, but there are funding opportunities outside of a membership. Find a local energy community near you.
