Community Renewable Energy (CoRE) is a social enterprise. We work with communities to develop renewable energy projects, that provide them with an income and a sustainable, secure energy supply. In return CoRE takes a stake in the companies created; to recoup development costs and to fund future community renewable energy projects.CoRE currently operates in the North East, North West and Birmingham. See CoRE projects for further information.
Join the CoRE Network and be kept up to date about community owned renewables through our meetings and training events.
It’s free to join!
