Community Energy

Community energy schemes occupy a position between micro-generation and projects of commercial scale, and have the potential to transform our economic and social landscape.

Community energy can deliver sustainable communities, creating employment and training opportunities across a wide range of skills, and promoting equitable and ethical business models, all underpinned by a sense of common purpose. Community Energy has been described as a sleeping giant that’s slowly waking up.

Our lawyers can help community energy groups to incorporate, using governance structures which balance democratic community ownership with effective business management – allowing you to focus on the things that count.
