Energy Generation

Hydro, wind, solar and more.

The community energy sector in wales has over a decade of experience in delivering energy generation projects, from solar to wind to hydro. The business models for these projects have changed over time, but many of the basic principles stay the same.

Here, you can find examples and case studies of the different types of energy generation models, and their impact on the community in they serve.

More and more communities are working with developers to gain a stake in larger energy projects through shared ownership. You can read more about the potential for your community at the shared ownership page.

If you and others in you community would like assistance in setting up your own energy generation project, head to the getting started page.

We are working with others (including Power for People) to change legislation to enable community groups to sell and trade energy that's generated locally. Our RhanNi network is a movement of like minded people who work together in various ways to champion and expand community energy. If you would like to be a part of this movement head to the RhanNi page.
