Project duration: July 2020 – 2021

Since 2020, Regen has worked with Energy Networks Association (ENA) to deliver a series of online community energy forums. The forums are a dedicated space for community energy representatives from across the UK to engage with changes that are happening to our energy system and share their views and perspectives on work ENA, and others such as Ofgem, are doing to decarbonise our energy system. As a key stakeholder group, ENA recognise the need to hear thoughts of community energy stakeholders and help to ensure that changes to our networks to bring about a smart, decarbonised energy system do not exclude community energy.

In 2021, the community energy forums have focussed on timely and relevant energy sector updates for community energy organisations, with discussions on:

  • Ofgem’s Access and Forward-looking charges Significant Code Review
  • Open Networks Project
  • Network connections
  • Gas Goes Green
  • Community energy in Europe
  • DNO business planning.

You can find out more about ENA’s work on shaping our future energy system, the Open Networks project and more on their website.

The ENA community energy forums are supported by Community Energy England, as well as Community Energy Wales, Local Energy Scotland and Electricity North West.
