Community energy – Driving forward energy’s 3 D’s … … Democratisation, Decarbonisation, Decentralisation

Sweeping changes are taking place in the way Energy is generated, managed, distributed and supplied. Known as the 3 D’s (Democratisation, Decentralisation and Decarbonisation), these changes are presenting opportunities for community energy and local communities.

Tamar Energy Community (TEC), and its sister organisation South Dartmoor Community Energy (SDCE), are thriving social enterprises working hard to capitalise on these changes for local benefits. These include opportunities to improve health and wellbeing, local economy as well as reducing our environmental impact.
