How can we build energy transition capacity in all neighbourhoods?

What is Community-led Energy Planning?

Community-led Energy Planning (CLEP) is a place-based, community-centred approach to building knowledge, understanding and confidence in lower-income communities to enable them to shape and benefit from the energy transition. 

Using this approach:

  • Allows local people to engage in energy transition planning and action
  • Generates valuable neighbourhood-level data to inform the approach to and delivery of the local energy transition 
  • Enables the activation of community-led and -owned initiatives which can build community wealth as part of the energy transition.
