Younity believes that together we can put community energy at the heart of sustainable power.
We concentrate on breaking down some of the barriers that prevent community energy projects from coming on-stream, whilst inspiring people from all walks of life to become a part of the community energy movement, enabling them to make a direct impact in tackling climate change and building a more sustainable future.
All around the country, community groups of all shapes and sizes are working together to change the way we produce and consume power, through locally led renewable energy projects. With the support of our friends at Your Co-op Energy and Octopus Energy, Younity is here to make sure they succeed. In fact, we won’t rest until community energy has earned its place at the heart of sustainable power.
We’re proudly supporting 200 community energy producers around the country, which means they get the fair energy prices needed to continue their amazing work. These partnerships are creating enough community-generated energy to power around 60,000 homes. It’s an amazing achievement, but it really is just the beginning of a much bigger movement.
Kickstart your Community Energy project with Younity:
Launched in collaboration with Octopus Energy and Midcounties Co-operative, the Community Energy Kickstart is here to help plug the funding gap for community energy projects. With £1.5m of funds available, this bridging loan is for projects across England, Scotland and Wales who are building and managing local renewable energy generation to benefit the local community while creating more cheap, green energy.
