Repowering London Case Study
Repowering London has become one of the sector’s leading organisations. They create cooperatively owned renewable energy projects whose financial revenues stay with the local communities such as with Brixton Energy. The support Pure Leapfrog provided has supported the group to become self-sustaining and deliver a range of community energy projects.
Carbon Co-op Case Study
Carbon Co-op is a community energy co-operative that promotes the development of carbon reduction measures. It focuses on making it simple, cheap and easy for households, streets and neighbourhoods to come together to retrofit their houses through the purchase of low-carbon and energy-saving equipment. As Carbon Co-op is owned by its members, any profits generated are re-invested back into the co-operative and the more people that join, the cheaper the products become.
Carbon Co-op’s unique Community Green Deal programme works with 14 homeowners occupiers around Greater Manchester to create a network of eco show houses, retrofitted to achieve emission reductions of 80%. Once a month, Carbon Co-op put member household energy efficiency questions to specialists, architects and engineers. The sessions are streamed live and videos archived for later viewing.
Pure Leapfrog helped provide the professional support that Carbon Co-op needed to get off the ground. The project involved creating the business plan and legal contracts that mirrored the principles of the Green Deal.
Ashton Hayes Case Study
Located in rural Cheshire, Ashton Hayes is a well knit community of about 1000 people that is aiming to become England’s first carbon neutral community. The project combines behavioural change, awareness raising and sharing best practice as well as introducing technology that will supply the village with renewable energy and an income stream to fund community programmes and increase local sustainability.
Pure Leapfrog provided advice and guidance at all stages of the project and links to a network of financial, legal and technical support. Over the course of four distinct phases, the network of professional support assisted with: community engagement, the DECC Low Carbon Communities Challenge project, developing commercial contracts, and provided advise on State Aid.
