2021 Community Energy Fund news

Early in 2021 we were delighted to raise £3 million of new investment into the Community Energy Fund. Thank you so much to everyone who has invested, putting their money to work tackling climate change.

You can read more about this share offer including what the money will be used for here.

A huge thank you to everyone who has supported us and helped make this possible.

What is the Community Energy Fund?

The Community Energy Fund is the investment opportunity that puts your money to work delivering local projects to tackle climate change and pays you interest in return for your support.

We use the money invested in the Fund to strengthen and grow our portfolio of community energy projects. As a result we generate more green energy, a sustainable income stream for our carbon-cutting community work, and can deliver ground-breaking collaborative partnerships to accelerate the transition to a zero carbon energy system.

Since its inception in 2018, we’ve raised over £6 million through the Community Energy Fund, from over 1,700 investors.

Our renewable energy projects

The Low Carbon Hub owns and manages 47 renewable energy installations across Oxfordshire, including rooftop solar, Sandford Hydro, and a ground mount solar park, Ray Valley Solar.
