WELCOME TO THE
LOW CARBON HUB

Creating energy we can
all feel good about

The Low Carbon Hub is 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.

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.

Invest in the Community Energy Fund

By the end of 2021 we need to raise £3 million to strengthen and grow clean, renewable energy generation in Oxfordshire. We have an initial target raise of £1.5 million by 31 March 2021. By investing in the Community Energy Fund, you will help us to:

  • Build Ray Valley Solar, a 19 MW ground mount solar park, three miles from Bicester
  • Continue to develop roof-mounted solar PV arrays on buildings across Oxfordshire.

Low Carbon Hub in Oxford is one of the most important community energy organisations in the UK. It’s poised to start a revolution in the way we develop and use our energy.
