Community Energy in Hertfordshire Conference

Community energy refers to local community action to generate, reduce, manage or purchase energy. Community energy projects can help tackle climate change, help people save money on their energy bills and have wider social and economic benefits.

The Hertfordshire Sustainability Forum are organising a conference to look at the progress of community energy projects nationally and locally, explore some of the challenges and highlight opportunities for joint working and developing further projects in Hertfordshire.

The conference will take place on Thursday 5th November in Ware. It is aimed at both local authorities and community groups interested in undertaking their own community energy projects. The conference is free but spaces are limited. For further details or to book a place please contact

How Green is Your Home?

Almost anything we do has some kind of an impact on the environment. Unfortunately most of our actions have harsher effects than we realise.

In order to lessen these effects we have researched many subjects (e.g. transport, energy and outdoor recreation) related to everyday life. From this research we have compiled the most relevant and interesting information and presented it all under one roof. To make the browsing of our website even easier we have designed an interactive house summarising the main points.
