What is a Community Energy Project?

A Community Energy Project is a challenging but exciting opportunity for communities to have ownership and control over something incredibly important in their life – energy.  We wanted to invite knowledgeable people to have an opportunity to share their knowledge for the benefit of others. So, we interviewed over 60 people and organisations in the process of writing this guide. Their views are embodied in this guide. This guide is written by passionate advocates of community energy, to inspire you and help you in your journey.
