Project Management

Start to finish members’ independent practical and technical support, and project management, focusing on equitable social returns on investment in community low carbon projects. Our unique engagement approach ensures everyone in your community can participate during the projects’ development. From energy generation at scale to transport solutions to local energy plans, we can support your organisation or community-led business to realise its low carbon ambitions and increase community resilience.
