About Devon Energy Collective CIC

In 2019, all of Devon’s local authorities including Dartmoor and Exmoor National parks declared a climate emergency.

Our aim is to take action to address the climate emergency and to deliver the Devon Carbon Plan by creating a Devon that runs entirely on green energy.

We believe that, rather than buying power from outside the country, we can produce clean, locally owned energy here in Devon. This will significantly boost our local economy, retaining approximately £1.76 billion in our county and creating a local industry and jobs across the region.

Devon Energy Collective CIC is a not-for-profit community interest company. We were set up by the Devon Community Energy Network, a collaboration of 23 local energy organisations in the county who own a number of renewable energy generators, advise on energy efficiency and deliver climate education. We are wholly owned by Devon’s local community energy companies.

Our purpose is to develop community owned renewables projects across Devon  at scale, to address climate change.

Our community group members work with the communities local to our projects, helping to identify new projects. All surpluses generated by Devon Energy Collective CIC will be re-invested in carbon reduction in Devon.

We will use our profits to retrofit homes and business, making us warmer, healthier and helping people out of fuel poverty.
