Connecting you to community energy in 2022

This map represents the most comprehensive dataset of community energy groups, projects and their locations, that we know to exist nationally. A large amount of data in this map is internal to CEE and has been collated through our Annual State of Sector Reports. A huge thank you goes to Community Energy Scotland for helping us collate this research. Thank you also to our partners at the BEIS Net Zero Hubs who have also helped us collate project information for the projects funded through the recently closed Rural Community Energy Fund programme. For more information on data, please email members@communityenergyengland.org

The map's data includes:

  • National community energy projects, known through Community Energy England's membership and Annual State of the Sector Reports.
  • Projects funded through the recently closed Rural Community Energy Fund (RCEF), the UK government programme supporting community energy

Please note: This map is currently in development and does not yet contain all community energy data. If you spot any errors in the map please do get in touch with Shannon Jackson
