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.
