Community Energy across Sussex

Since January 2014 REPOWERBalcombe has been proud to be a member of the network of renewable energy co-operatives across Sussex – Community Energy South. This vibrant network has introduced us to communities from across Sussex who are working together to create clean energy solutions, and has provided us with invaluable support in the setting up of REPOWERBalcombe.

Over Community Energy Fortnight, we were delighted to be invited to speak at the Community Energy South Discussions series about our plans to generate clean energy for Balcombe.

The event was a great success and brought together individuals, local authorities, community groups, local businesses, and more to discuss community energy. We heard from projects across Sussex from plans to directly supply homes with electricity from their local energy co-operatives, to investigations into a district heating system, to Brighton University’s plans to support green growth.

2014 is a very exciting time to be involved in community energy, and we are delighted that REPOWERBalcombe is part of the wonderful Community Energy South network who are together transforming Sussex’s energy system.
