What is a Sustainable Energy Community

A Sustainable Energy Community (SEC) is a community in which everyone works together to develop a sustainable energy system for the benefit of the community. This is achieved by:

  • Aiming, as far as possible, to be energy efficient
  • Using renewable energy where feasible
  • Adopting smart energy solutions

Join us on this journey

In recent years, there has been a grassroots movement in which communities are working to improve their energy use. We want to help communities do this by supporting them on a three-step journey. We call this Learn-Plan-Do.
