We’re a social enterprise that’s out to prove we can meet our energy needs in a way that’s good for people and the planet

A New Energy System

The days of fossil fuels are numbered. The shift to renewable generation is gaining pace and gives us the opportunity to reshape the way we manage our energy.

We are calling for the creation of a new system that:

- has renewable generation and energy efficiency at its heart, reducing carbon emissions
- makes the money we spend on energy work harder for the benefit of our communities and strengthening the local economy
- supports the creation of more locally-owned community energy projects, putting local power in the hands of local people
- makes our homes, businesses, and community buildings more healthy and comfortable
- is smart and flexible so as to be able to make the most of future technological solutions.

Our vision

Each year, Oxfordshire spends £1.5 billion on energy. By encouraging energy efficiency, increasing local energy generation, supporting the shift to electric transport and championing community ownership, Low Carbon Hub is ensuring that more of this money stays local. In the process, we are creating a better energy template for not just Oxfordshire but the whole of the UK.

What is Community Energy?

If we want a renewable energy future in the UK – and specifically one that is developed for the benefit of local economies and communities – we will need to stand up for it, together.

To us, community energy needs to be a fundamental part of the national energy transition. This means creating projects owned or controlled by communities, which aim to reduce energy demand or to supply renewable energy to power local buildings.

Our ambition is for the whole of Oxfordshire to be powered by an interconnected series of smart micro-grids centred around multiple small scale, community controlled renewable energy schemes.
