A new National Grid guide, supported by Regen, delves into how individuals and organisations can get started with community heat projects.

This guide focuses on providing community energy and other community organisations with the insights and practical information needed to deliver their own community-owned heat initiatives. Whether you are starting from scratch or looking to expand your community energy work, this guide will provide knowledge and guidance to help navigate the landscape of community-owned low carbon heating.

The guide covers the basics of heat technologies, the typical types of community heat projects and the initial engagement steps that will need to be made with your local community.

It also delves it the more complex steps that follow, including feasibility studies, finance, business models and working together with local authorities and organisations, as well as containing a whole host of useful resources for interested groups and individuals.
