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 good for the planet.
We develop community-owned renewable energy installations across Oxfordshire that not only produce clean energy but accelerates the transition to the zero carbon energy system we need for the future, providing electricity, heat and a clean transport system, all powered by renewables.
The installations also produce an ongoing income, which is reinvested in further carbon cutting projects. We help local organisations become more energy efficient, fund green innovation, and back further community energy projects. We make every pound of investment work hard to bring our vision of a smart and fair energy system to life.
We’re at the heart of a growing partnership of people and organisations across Oxfordshire, working together, for a low carbon future.
The UK’s energy system is changing, and through innovation projects such as Project LEO, we are playing a central role in developing the smart, flexible electricity system of the future in Oxfordshire. One that benefits us all.
