Community Energy Fortnight 2023

We're delighted to confirm that CEF 2023 will start on 10 June and will run until 23 June. More information about this year's theme and focus will be announced in January.

Community Energy Fortnight 2022

Last year's CEF finished on 24 June and the theme was Efficiency First. 

You can browse the hashtags #EfficiencyFirst and #CEF2022 to look back through Twitter activity from the Fortnight. 


There were a wide range of events during the Fortnight - so many of our members and supporters got involved with CEF 2022 by hosting events - thank you!

Recordings of as many events as possible, will be available in our CEF 2022 YouTube playlist


We love reading and sharing the sector's wide-ranging thoughts and opinions on the energy transition, social benefits, renewable technologies, policy, and much more, and we're grateful to the people and organisations who countributed blogs to CEF 2022:
