  • Posted: 02 Oct 2015

Triodos Renewables is delighted to have agreed that the national charity, Centre for Sustainable Energy (CSE) will deliver a new programme of work to benefit community buildings close to our sites.

We are delighted to announce that Triodos Renewables has teamed up with national charity, Centre for Sustainable Energy to deliver a programme of works which will enhance fundamental understanding of energy issues and install energy improving measures into community buildings around the country.

Centre for Sustainable Energy (CSE) is an independent national charity that was initiated in 1979. Their mission is to share their knowledge and practical experience to empower people to change the way they think and act about energy.


Community buildings are a social hub in many villages and towns, providing valuable space for all manner of groups to meet. Groups of individuals who rely on those events for their personal well being, social interaction, celebration or development.

We're frequently frustrated, however, by how many of these crucial spaces simply don't have good energy management measures in place.  Simple things like boiler control settings or draft-proofing to more involved aspects such as insulation or energy efficient lighting.  This can often make the spaces uncomfortable or unwelcoming to the very groups who rely on them most.


That's why we've put together a programme for improvement. A programme which will educate representatives of the buildings, help them identify improvements they could make and even contribute funds to install the measures which will have the biggest impact.

Partnering with the experienced charity Centre for Sustainable Energy (CSE) is a great way to deliver this. Head of Development at CSE, Janine Michael said "we are really delighted to be working with Triodos Renewables and we look forward to delivering a scheme that makes a real impact in your target communities."

CSE have a network of contacts already involved in community work and is set up to help offer remote advice to local representatives meaning as much of our funding as possible is channelled into installing measures which will achieve the impact.

Details of the programme and how to apply will be published soon.
