Welcome to the Community Energy Scotland State of the Sector portal.

Community energy is about people and communities taking democratic control over their energy future, by understanding, generating, using, owning and saving energy in their communities, as well as working together across regions and nationally.

This site is for organisations to tell us about the community energy projects they are involved in, or actively developing.

This database and our research provides the most comprehensive and inclusive view of community energy in the UK and allows us to highlight sectoral achievements, make a positive case for community energy and its role in the Net Zero transition, and play a crucial role in influencing government policy and other key sector decision makers.

Find out more about State of the Sector here and read our most recent report here.

State of the Sector 2024 is kindly sponsored by SP Energy Networks. This support is vital for enabling us to conduct the research.
