Support for communities – low carbon economy programme

LocaliseWest Midlands, working in partnership with Marches Energy Agency (MEA) has been involved in delivering the Community Strand of the West Midlands Low Carbon Economy Programme (LCEP), co-ordinated by Sustainability West Midlands, and led by Improvement and Efficiency West Midlands.

The Community Strand has provided tailored advice, guidance and support to a wide range of community-led renewable energy and energy efficiency initiatives across the region.  We have also supported a network of community energy mentors who are available to support the development of new projects.

More than thirty community organisations have been assisted through the Community Strand and several of them have successfully implemented projects as a result.

A wide range of open source resources are available for those wishing to set up a community energy project – visit the Sustainability West Midlands website to browse them.
