Welcome to Sharenergy. Sharenergy is a not-for-profit organisation which helps communities find, build and own renewable energy generation: we are currently working with hydro power, wind, biomass, biogas and solar projects from our base in the Marches and throughout the UK.
If you’ve ever looked at an old weir and wondered if it could be used to generate electricity, or thought about using food waste to make biogas, we want to hear from you! You could:
- be involved in running your local green electricity generation plant
- invest some money and get a decent return
- provide an energy generation site and earn rent
We are gearing up for the launch of the Rural Community Renewable Energy Fund, expected to be launched in May this year. If you are thinking of applying to this fund, please get in touch to discuss your project with us and to see if we can help.
To find out more about how we work, take a look at our services, our one minute introduction to renewable energy co-ops, or dive into the details using the links on the right of the page. Or for the nitty gritty of real renewables development check out our Community-Led Windpower guide. You might be interested in job opportunities as well.
Well after a number of false starts we are underway and it’s great to see things happening at what suddenly seems like incredible speed! More photos will be posted as work progresses on site – here is a first taster:
The boiler house is now in place and the trenches for the district heating dug. Next steps are the chip store, the boiler itself, and the laying of pipes in the trenches.
A lot of work has also been going on behind the scenes in tweaking the design to make sure the system will be as efficient as possible. Completion date is now set for late July – in time for the hottest August in living memory no doubt!
We have a 40 metre met mast with instrumentation to collect data on wind speeds and direction for sale or for rent. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested or call 01743 277119
