Community Sector Organisations

Developing and implementing renewable energy projects at a community scale.

Is your community on the frontline of the green energy revolution? Low Carbon Dorset is supporting community led projects looking to use renewable energy technologies to reduce their carbon emissions.

Community involvement is a key factor, and we want to see your innovation and ideas. Types of projects could include:

  • Renewable energy installations (up to 5MW) – e.g. Biomass boilers, Renewable Heat (Ground, air and water source heat pumps), On-shore wind, Marine energy, Solar PV, Small Scale Hydro.
  • Smart energy systems – e.g. systems or models that use smart metering/demand management, or energy distribution and sharing

To be eligible for community sector support you must be either:

  • A legally constituted voluntary or community organisation located within Dorset, Bournemouth or Poole, or
  • A registered charity located within Dorset, Bournemouth or Poole.
