Our Mission:  

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. 

What we do: 

To achieve our mission, we have three key strands: 
• Powering up: developing community-owned renewable energy generation projects 
• Powering down: working on reducing energy demand and use 
• Innovation: catalysing system change and develop a smarter, more flexible, low carbon energy system for the future. 


Core Low Carbon Hub messaging 

You may use the sample copy below to refer to our work: 

  • Low Carbon Hub is an award-winning 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.  
  • Our role is to be a catalyst of change: driving innovation and creating an ecosystem that is able to develop and pilot practical, real-world solutions that will become models for other communities throughout the world.  
  • Low Carbon Hub develops 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. 
  • We develop community-owned renewable energy in Oxfordshire and because we are run for the benefit of the community, we use all of our profits to fund community-led action on climate change. We work with partners, large and small, including community groups, local authorities, commercial businesses, and academics to support a smart and fair energy transition.  
  • We’re at the heart of a growing partnership of people and organisations across Oxfordshire, working together, for a low carbon future. 
  • Our innovation work includes two pilot programmes supporting energy efficiency and Project LEO, one of the UK’s most ambitious, wide-ranging, and innovative energy trials. You can read more about us on our website: www.lowcarbonhub.org
