Supporting community energy

How are we supporting community energy?

Find out more about our newsletters, events, reports, strategy and annual fund supporting community and local energy.

We were the first Distribution Network Operator (DNO) to publish a community and local energy strategy in 2018 and since then have been working hard to ensure we are responding to the sector’s needs.

Since we first published a community and local energy strategy in 2018 we have:

  • Funded 12 projects through our Powering our Communities and Empowering our communities funds.
  • Hosted 9 Community Connects engagement events.
  • Published quarterly Community and Local Energy newsletters.
  • Published quarterly Regulation and Policy updates in response to stakeholder feedback.
