Community Energy England was founded in 2014 by practitioners within the community energy sector to act as the voice of the sector and help put people at the heart of the energy system. In the years since, our membership has grown to over 280 community energy organisations and a range of other stakeholder organisations. We have cemented this position and steadily increased our expertise, activities, impact and membership, whilst remaining the only organisation dedicated to representing and supporting the community energy sector in England. This work is underpinned by our uniquely extensive network and connections within the sector and amongst relevant government and other stakeholders.
All our work is intended to help clear obstacles, create connections between practitioners and stakeholders, and facilitate the work of community energy organisations, thereby benefiting the sector as a whole. We are there to help when issues and policy changes affect community energy organisations’ ability to create and implement projects.
