Imagine a neighborhood that can
save, generate and share energy

Community Energy includes local efforts to manage how we use energy and where our energy comes from. It refers to multiple energy sources and distribution networks that are shared between various members of a geographic neighborhood, with at least part of the energy generated in the local area. This means some degree of local involvement in the management and control of the system, with sharing of responsibilities, benefits (including revenue) and impacts among the community.

How Do We Use Energy?

Individuals have a significant influence on energy conservation. People’s awareness,  understanding, and actions on energy conservation  can dramatically change their  energy consumption. For example, behavior change can include switching to more  efficient light bulbs and Energy Star appliances in your home, putting on a sweater instead  of turning up the  heat, or retrofitting your house to improve its insulation.
