Objectives

Our ambition is to  bring local people together into a collective, to  bring accessible, affordable, low carbon energy and warm healthy homes with no upfront cost to householders.

Rossendale Valley Energy has been awarded grant funding to train energy champions and work to deliver energy efficiency advice throughout the community of Rossendale. We are partnered with the Centre for Energy Equality who have developed the Fairer warmth Platform and app and we will be utilising and trialling this as part of our project delivery. 

Rossendale Valley Energy are also pioneering the ‘Net Zero Terrace street’ which is a whole street, whole community approach to decarbonisation and we are developing further funding applications to work towards a demonstrator project.

We are passionate about Net Zero being accessible and inclusive and being delivered from the ground up, harnessing the jobs, skills and supply chain opportunities for the local community enabling retention and building of community wealth.
