The Resilient Energy approach is a new, award winning, community based model that is attracting positive national attention. We believe that the best way to realise renewable energy potential is to develop a fair and equitable relationship between the landowner, the developer and the local community.
We work in partnership with landowners to deliver investable Community Scale projects designed to help meet (rather than exceed) local energy demand, whilst also making a positive difference to the quality of life and resilience of the communities in which they are based.
We're always interested to hear about community energy projects.Contact
