Project duration: July – October 2020

Regen worked with Energy Networks Association (ENA) to deliver a series of community energy forums in September and October 2020. The forums were a dedicated space for community energy representatives from across the UK to get updated on work ENA is doing to shape our energy system, gain insight from ENA’s team, and share their feedback and perspectives on ENA’s workstreams and products. As a key stakeholder group, ENA recognised 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.

The key topics and areas for discussion at the community energy forums were:

  • Open Networks Project
  • Flexibility
  • Innovation
  • Whole Energy Systems
  • Data
  • Network charging
  • Regulation
  • Gas Goes Green

You can find out more about ENA’s work on shaping our future energy system, the Open Networks project and more on their website. Read our report for ENA summarising the forums and feedback from community energy stakeholders here.

The ENA community energy forums were supported by Community Energy England and Electricity North West.
