Results of our 2018 annual survey

The results are in for our 2018 ‘How are we doing?’ survey and they show that people continue to trust in our expertise around local, renewable energy and low carbon. Our respondents also continue to perceive us to be committed to the creation of a low carbon, locally owned renewable energy system. We’re really pleased that our investor members, community groups, partners and collaborators continue to think highly of us as an organisation. 


Overall, our 2018 results largely track with the previous year’s; there was a slight increase in the percentage of people who report that the Low Carbon Hub has made them more positive about the potential of community-owned solutions to energy issues. It was also great to see a 5% increase in respondents who report the Low Carbon Hub has contributed to them taking some or substantial action on energy or environmental issues. 

Thanks so much to everyone who took part in the survey. We really appreciate everyone taking the time to give us their feedback and we do go through each response to look for ways to improve and your suggestions as to how we can do things better. 

As the survey was anonymous, we won’t be able to get back to any individuals directly about their comments; however, if you would like to discuss anything you may have raised in more detail, then please do get in touch with us at

Thank you so much to everyone who took part in the survey! It really is invaluable in helping us plan and improve the way we do things.
