Empower Community

Accelerating the transition to sustainable low carbon local economies

The purpose of Empower Community is to accelerate the transition to a low carbon economy
by providing access to much-needed capital for community renewable energy and energy efficiency projects.

It is designed to create a virtuous cycle of resource allocation for social and environmental benefit
that encourages large-scale community participation, ownership and responsibility.

Empower Community is a social enterprise that balances the interests of all stakeholders by…

Providing a high quality
investment opportunity
with attractive returns

Reinvesting profits
in further community projects

Facilitating a community share
in revenues and ultimate community
ownership of assets

While grass-roots, action-oriented responses to climate change continue to grow exponentially,
the current limited access to finance is hampering the wholesale development and implementation
of distributed energy solutions at anything like the scale or speed required.
